1. Chucky Brown
Brown played 13 years in the NBA and appeared for 12 different teams. He was the definition of a journeyman. The second-round pick in 1989 won a championship as a 15-minute per game role on the Rockets in 1995.
Wild Thing did not arrive in San Antonio until 1999. He had a decade of NBA experience and had started 234 of his 587 career games. Brown averaged just 17.8 minutes per game to that point and his production left plenty to be desired.
The 6’7 wing lasted just 30 games in the Alamo before being waived in February of 2000. He started 27 contests but averaged 6.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game. San Antonio wanted to contend and cut ties completely with Brown.
He was a deep reserve over his final three NBA seasons after oddly starting next to David Robinson. Credit to the front office for quickly moving on, but it is fair to question why he was opening games.
The San Antonio Spurs had some regrettable starters next to the Admiral, but they wouldn’t change it. Fans could argue the big man deserved more than two championships, but it is still a massive accomplishment that the franchise would not trade for anything.
