San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have long been considered the model of excellence in professional sports. This franchise made 22 consecutive seasons making the playoffs while winning five NBA Championships. The trio of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili, is famous among NBA fans, as they also lead all of the Spurs’ team stats.

Thanks to Gregg Popovich and one of the best, if not the best, front offices in the NBA, the Spurs are consistently good bets on the NBA odds. Of course, every franchise goes through rough stretches and the Spurs appear to be headed for one as they look to rebuild.

San Antonio Spurs Stats & Team History

The Spurs were a charter member of the American Basketball Association (ABA) as the Dallas Chaparrals. After six seasons, the franchise relocated to San Antonio. When the ABA merged with the NBA in 1976, the Spurs were one of four teams to stay intact. 

Led by George “Iceman” Gervin, the Spurs were successful in transitioning to the NBA. Gervin even won the All-Star Game MVP in 1980 and the Spurs consistently made the NBA playoffs and the Conference Finals. 

The Spurs never missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons. However, the franchise struggled in the mid-80s after Gervin left. This was a blessing in disguise, since the franchise won the NBA Draft Lottery and selected superstar center David Robinson in 1987. He debuted with the team in 1989 and promptly won Rookie of the Year.

With Robinson leading the San Antonio Spurs’ team stats, they became a perennial title contender. The team began to peak in the mid-90s, when Robinson won the MVP in the 1994-95 season. However, they lost to Hakeem Olajuwon’s Rockets. 

Robinson got injured for most of the 1996-97 season leading to San Antonio having its worst season. Again, this turned out to be a good thing in the long run, as the Spurs won the NBA Draft Lottery again and selected Tim Duncan in the 1997 NBA Draft.

Duncan formed one of the most dominant big-man tandems with Robinson. They were coined “The Twin Towers,” with Duncan winning consecutive MVPs and led the Spurs to two NBA Championships. Robinson retired, but the Spurs had already acquired supporting stars to help Duncan in Parker and Ginobili. Later in the 2010s, San Antonio acquired Kawhi Leonard, who would extend their dynasty.

The trio of Duncan-Parker-Ginobili made plenty of All-Star appearances and led San Antonio to five NBA Finals and four NBA Championships. By the time Duncan retired in 2016, the Spurs had five championships, tying them to the most by any team during this era.

Leonard departed San Antonio in 2018. While the Spurs stayed competitive, they finally saw their playoff streak snap in 2020. Now, the Spurs are in the midst of their worst stretch as a franchise. But considering their “luck” in acquiring superstar big men, keep an eye on the Spurs’ future, as they will return with a vengeance.
