The Spurs, who are celebrating their 50th season in existence, played in the Alamodome from 1993-2002 and won the 1999 NBA Championship when they called that stadium home. They seated 22,449 people on average during the 1994-95 campaign.

The 1999 championship-winning team notably played in front of 39,554 fans during Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the New York Knicks.

The Alamodome once sat a record 73,086 people in the building when George Strait held a concert there on June 1, 2013. For sporting events, a record total of 66,166 people attended the 2007 Alamo Bowl.

A sellout crowd would set the all-time mark for fans attending an NBA game. A total of 62,046 fans saw Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls play the Atlanta Hawks at the Georgia Dome on March 27, 1998.
