Has there ever been a team in any sport in the United States that everybody loves as much as the San Antonio Spurs?

Wednesday night Spurs fans flooded downtown for a celebration the city hasn’t seen in seven years; since the last time the team brought home an NBA championship.

The doors of the Alamodome opened at 4:30 p.m. and by 8 p.m. nearly every single seat was taken with nearly 70,000 people in attendance. Many fans waited up to five hours to see the team show off the five golden Larry O’Brien Trophies. Overhead, replays of game five and the Spurs river parade played on a large video screens as fans entered the arena.

The San Antonio Spurs have brought a fifth NBA title to the Alamo City after beating the Miami Heat last night 104-87. Following the win, downtown filled with Spurs fans reveling in the continuation of a dynasty.

San Antonians crowded Alamo, Market, Commerce and Houston streets following last nights win so well that SAPD had to divert honking traffic down side streets. Spurs fans have been waiting seven years for another title and wanted a victory after last year’s loss to the Heat.
