The upcoming NBA Draft will give the San Antonio Spurs a chance to add to their already impressive draft resume. With the number one pick, it is all but guaranteed that they will select Victor Wembanyama first, perhaps the biggest no-brainer selection in draft history. However, they also have two other picks in which to potentially strike gold, and more often than not, the Spurs have found great players later in the draft.
Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, and Keldon Johnson are all success stories with only a few misses in recent years. Some of those draft misses were more egregious than others, though none ultimately negatively affected the team in the long run. Still, it's interesting to see how the team would have looked had they not missed on several of their draft picks.
Better yet, let's take a look at each draft miss and see who the Spurs should have selected instead in an attempt to construct the best roster possible. Let's start with the 2011 NBA Draft and see how San Antonio could have altered their trajectory.
