The San Antonio Spurs have had one of the best ten year stretches in modern sports from 2010-2020. This is our all-decade team.
The 2010s were an amazing decade for the San Antonio Spurs. True legends of the game passed through the AT&T Center and some of the greatest games in Spurs history took place. There are very few professional sports organizations that were able to sustain the same level of success that the Spurs have for the past ten years.
“Rebound Bosh, back out to Allen, his three-pointer…BANG!” That moment, Ray Allen‘s game-tying three-pointer in the 2013 NBA Finals, will haunt San Antonio Spurs fans for the rest of time. An absolute gut punch, one of the most iconic shots in NBA history by one of the greatest shooters, snatched the Larry O’Brien Trophy right away. But it also set up what was the single most beautiful season of basketball that I’ve ever seen.
The 2013-14 NBA season and run to their fifth NBA championship was the peak of the San Antonio Spurs. You’ve probably seen the video tribute to that year’s team, most Spurs fans have. In it, you can see the Spurs carve opponents up with beautiful ball movement, excellent shooting, and a passion and joy for playing with one another that is incredibly rare in sports.
Across the decade the Spurs have had dozens of key players who’ve helped them maintain their historic excellence. From fan favorites to Hall of Famers, three-point experts to defensive dynamo’s, it was a total team effort that helped make the last ten years of San Antonio Spurs basketball so enjoyable. Here is our San Antonio Spurs All-Decade team.
