Four San Antonio Spurs greats, Tim Duncan, David Robinson, George Gervin and Sean Elliott, combined for a “legendary selfie.”

Through the San Antonio Spurs’ four-plus decades of history, they have had Pro Basketball Hall of Fame-worthy players don the Silver and Black. Some of these players contributed toward NBA championships, with the most recent one in 2014. The others were in 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007.

Tim Duncan, David Robinson, George Gervin and Sean Eliott can be considered some of the greatest to wear a Spurs jersey. They impacted the franchise for years, with Elliott, Robinson, and Robinson crossing paths in the 1990’s. Gervin arrived ahead of them in the 1970’s and 80’s.

On Wednesday, the Spurs Twitter account posted a selfie of these four players. It could only be described with one fitting word: legendary.

It looked like they were filming material, as the Spurs Twitter previously posted an image of them, with a camera in the background.

Whatever the case may be, this is an epic get-together for four of the greatest Spurs of all time. They either were recognized as some of the greatest players in the NBA or helped win championships, which will be remembered in the league’s record books.

Elliott played 11 seasons for the Spurs, from 1989-93 and 1994-01. He won one title and scored 14.4 points per game.

Gervin played parts of 12 seasons for the Spurs, from 1974-85. He was an All-Star in every year he was part of the team. Along with four scoring titles, it made him one of the best players in franchise history.

Robinson was a Spur from 1989-03. He won the 1999 and 2003 championships with the team, and was one of the top centers of the 1990’s.
