Who are the old san antionio spurs?

The mediocre Dallas Chaparrals of the old ABA (American Basketball Assn.) were a dissappointment to their wealthy owner base. In 1973, a few wealthy San Antonio businessmen "rented" the team for a year, moving them to the HemisFair Arena in San Antonio. A fan contest for a new name was held with "Spurs" being the eventual winnr. Three years later, the ABA melted into the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs being the first survivor to win the NBA Championship. Being an "Original Spurs Fan" has been a great experience... and none of the names I submitted have the impact and originality of the "Spurs" winning entry.
