The 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. I t 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, helping them build a major fan base
that shows up in a big way each and every time they take to the court.
