San Antonio Spurs 2024 NBA Championship Odds

At the onset of the season, there was plenty of excitement for the San Antonio Spurs. Top NBA Draft pick Victor Wembanyama is one of the most coveted new stars in the Association for at least a decade. But after Wembanyama's arrival, reality set in. The Spurs are an awful team, among the worst in the NBA, and light years away from becoming a serious playoff contender. Head coach Gregg Popovich was a genius when he had great players. Now, he’s not so smart with a limited roster of marginal players with a top rookie who is trying to find his way in the NBA jungle.

San Antonio Spurs History

The San Antonio Spurs were one of the four ABA franchises that joined the NBA in 1976. This team originally played in another part of the Lone Star State though, as the Spurs were originally called the Dallas Chaparrals. However, they were not very popular in Dallas and after stints in Fort Worth and Lubbock, the franchise moved to San Antonio and became the Spurs in 1973.

They were much more popular as the lone pro sports team in San Antonio. The Spurs were able to land their first superstar the same season they moved to their new home too, when they acquired George ‘Iceman’ Gervin from the Virginia Squires. Unfortunately, despite a lot of success and postseason appearances, the Spurs were not able to win their first championship until they had another superstar.

David ‘The Admiral’ Robinson was one of the best centers in the NBA during the 1990s, but the Spurs became a dynasty when Gregg Popovich took over the team and was able to select Tim Duncan with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1997 NBA Draft. The Spurs had won 20 games the previous year, but they were a 56-win team in Duncan’s first season alongside Robinson, and this team went on to win its first title during the strike-shortened 1998-99 season.

Robinson was still with the team when it won its second title in 2003, but he had been surpassed by youngsters Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker. Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker made San Antonio the most successful team in the league for two decades, as the Spurs went on to win five NBA titles and made the postseason for 22 consecutive seasons.
