For 30 Years, The San Antonio Spurs were the Greatest Dynasty in the NBA. 29 winning seasons, 17 Division Titles, 16 times as the #1 or #2 seed, 6 conference titles, and 5 NBA Championships. In 2018, the Spurs alienated star player Kawhi Leonard, which was an abrupt end to a 30 year run of dominance. We investigate exactly what happened with the Spurs, Kawhi Leonard, Gregg Popovich, and everyone else involved which sent the San Antonio Spurs 6th NBA Championship up to Toronto in 2019.

    Introducing The Spurs Dynasty: A Historical Account of the Most Successful Dynasty in North American Pro Sports8 Feb 2023· The Fall of the Spurs Dynasty

    We Wrote a Book!!! Based on our scripts for The Fall of the Spurs Dynasty, we have written a 250 page book on the San Antonio Spurs Dynasty. The Book is Available February 21st, 2023, and you can preorder or purchase https://linktr.ee/spurssixthchampionship here
    Here's the Back Cover Description of The Spurs Dynasty: A Historical Account of the Most Successful Dynasty in North American Pro Sports
    For 30 years, the San Antonio Spurs were one of the best teams in professional basketball. Led by Gregg Popovich, the Spurs set incredibly high standards, very often surpassed those, and set new, more ambitious standards. They drafted five Hall of Fame basketball players, won Championships in three different decades, and set countless records across an unprecedented run from 1989-2018. As their competition fell, history became the greatest adversary the Spurs faced, and like all great dynasties of history, they eventually fell too. When the Spurs Dynasty fell, it was one of the most bizarre stories in the 75-year history of professional basketball. An undiagnosable injury led to breakdowns in trust, new apparel contracts, players-only meetings, relationship fallouts, and so much more. The fallout then takes the story on an unexpected detour from Texas to Canada. In the end, despite sustaining success for an unprecedented 30 years, the Spurs Dynasty fell 10 years sooner than it could have. This is their story: David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginóbili, Tony Parker, Bruce Bowen, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and the San Antonio Spurs. The most successful dynasty in North American professional sports.

    On Episode 5, we follow the divergent paths between Kawhi Leonard, the San Antonio Spurs, and Gregg Popovich following their 2018 fallout.
