Pick any player that played one or more complete seasons for the Spurs from 1978 on
Pick players based on their “prime” or top three complete seasons with the Spurs
Pick the best player for each position as well as a sixth man.
With that here are your all-time Spurs!
Point Guard – Johnny Moore
Wins Produced: 38.7
Minutes Played: 7535
Top Seasons: 1982, 1983 and 1985

Wins Produced: 43.6
Minutes Played: 6509
Top Seasons: 2007, 2008 and 2010
