The San Antonio Spurs began as an original entry in the American Basketball Association. Called the Dallas Chaparrals, the franchise survived the turmoil of the ABA era and was rewarded with admittance to the NBA when the upstart league merged with the NBA. The franchise has fielded some fine teams over the years. In the late 1970s and early 1980s the team featured George "the Iceman" Gervin and won the Midwest Division five out of six years. In the late 1980s the addition of David Robinson turned the club back into a contender. And when Tim Duncan arrived, he and Robinson brought a championship home to San Antonio in 1999.
