SAN ANTONIO – Some of the most popular players in Spurs history returned to the AT&T Center Friday night.

Of course, it’s hard seeing them arrive as the visiting team members and not still dressing out in silver and black.

Regardless of the change in uniform, both Patty Mills and LaMarcus Aldridge, both now with the Brooklyn Nets, were welcomed back with open arms.

Check out some of our coverage below, including the Spurs’ tribute before the game started:

The Nets won Friday’s game 117-102. Mills finished with 9 points on 4-of-11 shooting, 4 rebounds and 3 assists starting tonight. Aldridge came off the bench to score 16 points and 7 rebounds.
