Tony Parker comes in at No. 4 in the top points leaders in San Antonio’s history. He’s already through 16 seasons in the NBA and is steadily seeing his minutes and production wind down. However, Parker was once one of the NBA’s top guards. It’s led him to 18,522 total points, giving him a 5,000-plus edge over Ginobili.

NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson ranks third with 20,790 career points. He was one of the most dominant big men of not just the 1990’s, but in NBA history. This includes eight seasons of averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Second in franchise history is George Gervin. He put up 23,602 points through his time with the Spurs, becoming one of their first legends from playing in both the ABA and NBA. The Iceman had 33.1 points per game in the 1979-80 season and had 32.3 in the 1981-82 campaign.

The Spurs’ all-time leader is Tim Duncan, who retired after the 2015-16 season. He finished with 26,496 points through his decorated career, which will get him into the Hall of Fame. From 1997-98 to 2009-10, Duncan averaged 17.9 points, nine of which had him put up 20 per game.
