NBA: All-Time Starting 5 of the San Antonio Spurs
Guard – Manu Ginobili
One of the greatest sixth man to ever play the game, Manu Ginobili had a collection of skills and basketball IQ that many do not have. His aggressive style was amazing to watch but Gregg Popovich made sure that his body was protected. Coach Pop decided to use him off the bench and it paid dividends since Ginobili was able to play until he was 40 years old.
Ginobili was a two-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA First Team selection, and the 2008 Sixth Man of the Year. He helped the Spurs win four NBA championships and he will surely get his No. 20 jersey in the rafters of the AT&T Center very soon. He ranks fifth in all-time Spurs scoring and rebounds, fourth in assists, and first in steals.
Honorable Mention: Guard – Alvin Robertson
Drafted seventh overall by the Spurs in 1984, Alvin Robertson quickly established himself as one of the best defenders in the NBA. He was the Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved Player in 1986, in addition to three All-Star game appearances for the Spurs.
