Did you have this poster when your were a kid? Remembering The Bruise Brothers

For the 1980 - 1981 NBA Season, new Spurs Coach Stan Albeck brought together a group of big men to give the high scoring Spurs a more physical presence under the basket.  This collection of centers and forwards were nicknamed 'The Bruise Brothers' by former Express-News columnist Kevin O'Keefe. The intimidating big men helped lead the team to a division title that year. 

This was a free promotional poster that was distributed by local Kinney Shoe Stores in the early 80's

Dave Corzine, , Reggie Johnson, Paul Griffin, Mark Olberding, Kevin Restani and George Johnson were the Bruise Brothers.
