Spurs’ Duncan, Ginobili, Parker become winningest trio in NBA history
Duncan, Ginobili and Parker have now recorded 541 regular season wins as teammates.
Duncan joined the Spurs first as the No. 1 overall pick in the 1997 NBA draft. The 18-year veteran has led San Antonio to five NBA championships and no losing seasons in his tenure with the team. Duncan re-signed with the Spurs for two years in July.
Ginobili was drafted in the second round in ’99, but did not join the Spurs until the 2002 season. The Argentinean’s first season coincided with the franchise’s second championship in ’03. Ginobili also re-signed for two years in the off-season.
Parker was drafted in the first round of the 2001 NBA draft, quickly becoming the Spurs’ starting point guard. Parker won an NBA Finals MVP in ’07, when San Antonio defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers for their fourth NBA championship. Parker is under contract through 2019.
As teammates, Duncan, Ginobili and Parker have been part of four championship teams, eight division titles and six conference titles.
