San Antonio Spurs - About Us
The San Antonio Spurs are part of the National Basketball Association (NBA), a league that features the best of the best in the world of basketball. The Spurs organization was founded in 1967 and joined the NBA in 1976. They were originally known as the Dallas Chaparrals and underwent several name changes before settling on the San Antonio Spurs in 1973. The Spurs have had two of the best big men to ever play the game in David Robinson and Tim Duncan. San Antonio enjoyed regular season success aplenty in the 1970s and early 1980s behind stars such as George Gervin, Larry Kenon, James Silas and Artis Gilmore, but ran into the Washington Bullets in the Eastern Conference in the 1970s and the Los Angeles Lakers in the early ‘80s out West. The Spurs bottomed out in the middle of the 1980s and drafted Navy star David Robinson first overall in 1987, opting to wait two years for him to fulfill his military obligation. Robinson’s arrival launched a new era of success for the Spurs, save for a 20-win season in 1996-97 when Robinson was out with a back injury most of the year. That led, however, to the drafting of franchise icon Tim Duncan with the first pick in 1997 and San Antonio hasn’t missed the postseason since.
The Spurs won titles in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014. Coach Gregg Popovich, who served as the Spurs general manager from May 1994 through July 2002, took over as head coach 18 games into the disastrous 1996-97 season and has gone 1,078-480 in the regular season and 152-94 in the playoffs since.
