18. Dejounte Murray (2016-present)

This is definitely the ranking with the biggest potential of a rapid jump. In looking just at the numbers, Dejounte Murray probably already deserves at least a top 15 spot. Still, it's maybe a season too early to put him much higher even if he's about to finish 2022 with an average dangerously close to a triple-double.

Murray's recent NBA All-Star selection is likely the first of many (as Stephen Curry put it) as he continues to establish himself as the newest face of the franchise. As such, Dejounte's all-around game will start to propel him up the leaderboard in Spurs' lore.

There aren't many players in the league who've ever had a statistical season like Murray is having in 2021-22, and I can't see a reason that would change anytime soon for the 25-year-old. Look for him to be entering the top 10 conversation very soon, and that's certainly not his limit.

Highlight: Dejounte Murray makes the 2022 NBA All-Star team in his first year as the number one option.

17. Johnny Moore (1980-88, '89-90)

Johnny Moore's stats in San Antonio don't jump off the page more than some of the guys behind him on the list, but his longevity and postseason performances give him a decent jump in my book. Through his first six seasons with the Spurs, Moore averaged 10.5 points, 8.7 assists, and 2.2 steals per game. He bumped that up to 14 points and 10.1 assists per game in the playoffs during that span.

Unfortunately, Moore contracted a rare illness called Desert Fever in 1985 that all but ended his basketball career before he even turned 30. Still, Moore ranks in the top 10 in team assists, steals, and triple-doubles.

Highlight: Johnny Moore dazzles in the first two rounds of the 1983 NBA Playoffs, averaging 22.5 points, 14.6 assists, and 2.5 steals through 11 games.
