3. George Gervin

Seasons in San Antonio:

12 (1973-1985)

Stats w/ the Spurs

26.3 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 2.8 APG, 2.3 Stocks, 50.8 FG%

Nicknamed “The Iceman,” George Gervin was simple a cold-blooded scorer. Gervin won the NBA scoring title four times and was a top-10 league leader in points in the ABA or NBA 11 different seasons, and he held the franchise scoring record until this calendar year. He once had the most steals in team history (and still remains in second), forcing 1,159 turnovers during his 12 seasons with the Spurs. A nine-time All-NBA selection, 12-time All-Star, 1980 All-Star Game MVP, Gervin is only missing the illustrious NBA championship as an addition to his impressive resume. San Antonio retired Gervin’s jersey in 1987.

2. David Robinson

Seasons in San Antonio:

14 (1989-2003)

Stats w/ the Spurs

21.1 PPG, 10.6 RPG, 2.5 APG, 4.4 Stocks, 51.8 FG%

A man who needs little introduction, David Robinson scored the second-most points in franchise history, once held the record for rebounds and currently holds the top spot with the most blocked shots. Robinson truly did it all and is one of the most athletic big men the league has ever seen. He also holds the career mark for most steals with 1,388 thefts during his 14-year career. “The Admiral” won two championships, was the 1994-95 league MVP and appeared on eight NBA All-Defensive teams. Shortly after his final season, Robinson’s number was retired by the Spurs in 2003. Robinson rarely missed a game throughout the entirety of his career, but two injuries prevented the 7-footer from playing all but six games of the 1996-97 season. San Antonio suffered without Robinson and had the NBA’s worst record, but it did open the door for the next guy on the list…


1. Tim Duncan

Seasons in San Antonio:

18 (1997-Present)

Stats w/ the Spurs

19.5 PPG, 11.0 RPG, 3.1 APG, 2.9 Stocks, 50.6 FG%

Tim Duncan was drafted first overall during the 1997 NBA draft, and all he has done is win five championships, three finals MVPs, two league MVPs, Rookie of the Year, be named to 14 All-NBA and NBA All-Defensive teams, appear in 15 All-Star games and be chosen as an All-Star Game MVP. Additionally, the 50-game 1998-99 season notwithstanding, Duncan’s Spurs teams have never won fewer than 50 games. Yeah, Duncan has been pretty good, and he might have a few seasons left in the tank. The Wake Forest product is regarded by most as the greatest Power Forward of All-time and easily a top 10 greatest player as well. Whether Duncan decided to call it quits or go at it a few more years, he will undoubtably hold his rank as one of the all time greats forever.
