A list of the best San Antonio Spurs of all time. The Spurs are one of the four ABA franchises to successfully transition into the NBA. San Antonio has had one of the greatest runs in modern basketball history. Beginning in 1989 after a few years of misery, the team's first overall pick in 1987, David Robinson, started playing for the team after his two-year naval commitment was completed. From the start, Robinson was one of the greatest centers in the NBA. The team went on a long successful run with "The Admiral" steering the ship. Along with Sean Elliott, one of the best Spurs ever, San Antonio began its golden era.

In 1997, after a down year where Robinson missed nearly the entire season with a knee injury, the Spurs drafted Tim Duncan, one of the best players of his generation. Duncan proved to be exactly what the Spurs needed. The team won four NBA titles with Duncan on the team, which cemented his status as one of the greatest players ever. When Robinson retired, new stars emerged. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are vital cogs to the Spurs engine, and are two of the biggest legends in San Antonio Spurs history. Throughout the team's greatest period, it has been the model franchise in terms of stability and its ability to consistently draft great players. This is how the team drafted Parker, who is one of the best point guards in team history.
