2. Greg Anderson

The Spurs drafted Cadillac with the 23rd overall pick in 1987. San Antonio had the first and last selections in the first round that year and took David Robinson number one overall. The Admiral spent two years in the military, but Anderson played a key role in the Spurs making the playoffs as a rookie.

San Antonio decided to trade Cadillac in a package for Terry Cummings in the 1989 offseason. He did not get the chance to play with Robinson until the Spurs signed him in 1995. Anderson struggled to find a consistent role in their six years apart. The 6’10 forward even spent one year overseas to get more run.

Anderson barely played for the Spurs in his first year back, but minutes opened up in their disastrous 1997 season. Still, he struggled to produce. The 32-year-old averaged 3.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 20.4 minutes per game. Anderson played one more year in the NBA after that before finishing his career in Argentina.

Greg Anderson made 55 starts in his two seasons with David Robinson on the roster, despite averaging just 2.9 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. He should not have been opening games and was saved from being named the absolute worst starter of this era by his first stint in San Antonio.
