San Antonio, TX - With the San Antonio Spurs back in the NBA finals for the second year in a row, it's bringing major revenue for businesses throughout the city.   

Visions of black and silver are covering San Antonio as the Spurs are NBA final bound once again. Workers from Academy Sports stores have reported selling Western conference and finals gear non-stop since this weekend.  Even the smaller businesses are getting into the Spurs action as one local shop has created Spurs "doggy tattoos".  

The Chamber of Commerce president says the city should generate about 3 million dollars per game during the finals so a long series could bring even more revenue. Officials in the Alamo City say that just having all eyes on San Antonio during the finals has a long lasting benefit and shows the rest of the world San Antonio is a city on the rise.
