San Antonio Silver Stars History
San Antonio Stars originated as the Utah Starzz as one of the original eight WNBA franchises when the league began in 1997.
The Starzz never achieved the success that their owners, who also owned the Utah Jazz, had hoped and they wanted to sell the
team rather than continue fielding a team. In late 2002, the Starzz were sold to an ownership group in San Antonio and officially
became the San Antonio Silver Stars. It would take a few seasons for the team to turn itself around, but like their brother
franchise the San Antonio Spurs, their ownership was committed to building a championship team from the bottom up. By 2007,
after many smart roster moves, the Silver Stars saw their hard work pay off, finishing second in the Western Conference and
making the playoffs for the first time since they moved to San Antonio. Though they lost to the Phoenix Mercury in the Conference
Finals, the Silver Stars knew that they had the talent to win it all. 2008 was an even better season for San Antonio, finishing
first in the Western Conference and making it all the way to the WNBA Finals. Since then, the Silver Stars have been one
of the most consistent teams in the league and they are out to prove that missing the playoffs in 2013 was just a bump in
