And here’s the All-Time San Antonio Spurs, another extremely stacked team!
PG- Tony Parker: One of the great Spurs of the 2000s dynasty, Parker helped the Spurs dominate the league for almost 20 years. In 17 seasons, he averaged 15.8 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 5.7 APG, and a 50.9 eFG%. Parker was also a 6-time All-Star, plus made 4 All-NBA Teams and won 4 championships and a Finals MVP in 2007.
SG- George Gervin: Gervin was KD Before KD, a tall, skinny wing who was an unstoppable scorer. In 12 seasons with the Spurs, Iceman averaged 26.3 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 2.8 APG, 1.3 SPG, and a 51.1 eFG%. He also made 11 All-Star teams, 9 All-NBA/All-ABA Teams (including 5 First Teams), and won 4 scoring titles.
SF- Kawhi Leonard: In just a few years, Kawhi solidified himself as one of the greatest Spurs ever. He averaged 16.3 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.8 SPG, and a 54.9 eFG%. Kawhi also made 2 All-Star teams, 2 All-NBA First Teams, 4 All-Defensive Teams (including 3 First Teams), won 2 DPOYs, a championship, and a Finals MVP, while being one of the best perimeter defenders this game has ever seen.
PF- Tim Duncan: This is a no-brainer. In 20 seasons with San Antonio, Timmy averaged 19 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 3 APG, 2.2 BPG, and a 50.7 eFG%, while making 15 All-Star teams, 15 All-NBA Teams (including 10 First Teams), 15 All-Defensive Teams (including 8 First Teams), plus won ROY, 2 MVPs, 5 championships, and 3 Finals MVPs. Just staggering accolades.
C- David Robinson: D-Rob was a monster for the Spurs in the 1990s. In 14 seasons, he averaged 21.1 PPG, 10.6 RPG, 2.5 APG, 3 BPG, and a 51.9 eFG%. He also made 10 All-Star teams, 10 All-NBA Teams, 8 All-Defensive Teams, won ROY, DPOY, MVP, 2 championships, a scoring title, a blocks title, and a rebounding title.
Thoughts? Do y’all agree with these picks? Any changes you would make? All-Time Mavericks will drop tomorrow!
Next up on the top 10 shooting guards are numbers 3 and 4!
. DeMar DeRozan: Coming in at 4 is the Spurs’ shooting guard. DeMar is a great scorer, with one of the most lethal midrange-games in the league and a great driving and finishing ability. Under Popovich’s system he’s also developed much better playmaking, being San Antonio’s primary ball handler and distributor. He’s even a decent defender, and has helped lead the Spurs into a playoff position this season.
. Jrue Holiday: Some of you may be surprised to see Jrue so high, but he definitely deserves it. Holiday is a great offensive player, both an effective number two scoring option behind Anthony Davis, as well as a great playmaker and facilitator for the Pelicans offense. Jrue is also an elite defender, making the All-Defensive First Team last season, and looking poised to do it again.
Thoughts? Do you agree with these placements? Where would y’all rank DeMar and Jrue? Let me know in the comments!
Today let’s look at the absolutely stacked All-Time Houston Rockets!
PG- Chris Paul: Although he’s only played 2 seasons with Houston, CP3 has solidified himself as a Rocket great. In those seasons, he’s averaged 17.5 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 7.9 APG, 1.8 SPG, and a 53.4 eFG% (including a 37.0 3PT%). While he hasn’t made any All-Star or All-NBA Teams, he’s played like one (and honestly should have been an All-Star last year), and helped Houston make the WCF and almost beat the Warriors. He definitely deserves this spot.
SG- James Harden: This one is obvious, Harden has had one of the greatest runs of any Rockets player ever. In 7 seasons, he’s averaged 28.8 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 7.7 APG, 1.8 SPG, and a 52.4 eFG%. He’s also made 7 All-Star teams, 5 All-NBA Teams (including 4 First Teams), won an MVP, a scoring title (about to get another), and an assists title.
SF- Tracy McGrady: McGrady was a monster in his time in Houston. In 6 seasons as a Rocket, T-Mac averaged 22.7 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 5.6 APG, 1.3 SPG, and a 46.0 eFG%. He also made 3 All-Star teams and 3 All-NBA Teams as a Rocket.
PF- Moses Malone: Although he’s most known as a Sixer, Malone was great for the Rockets as well. In 6 seasons in Houston, Malone averaged 24 PPG, 15 RPG, 1.5 APG, 1.6 BPG, and a 51.4 eFG%. He was a 5-time All-Star, and made 4 All-NBA Teams, an All-Defensive Second Team, and won 2 MVPs and 3 rebounding titles.
C-Hakeem Olajuwon: This is obvious; Hakeem is the greatest Rocket ever. In 17 seasons with Houston, he averaged 22.5 PPG, 11.4 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.8 SPG, 3.2 BPG, and a 51.4 eFG%. Hakeem did this all while making 12 All-Star teams, 12 All-NBA Teams (including 6 First Teams), 9 All-Defensive Teams (including 5 First Teams), won 2 championships, 2 Finals MVPs, 1 league MVP, 2 DPOYs, 2 rebounding titles, and 3 blocks titles. Crazy stuff.
