GCM staff San Antonians may disagree about a lot of things — their favorite Tex- Mex restaurant, the best place to buy custom-made boots, the one must- stop location along the Riverwalk — but if there's one thing that can unify opinions among the nearly 2.5 million people who call the metropolitan area home, it's the NBA's San Antonio Spurs. The city's only major professional sports team, the Spurs are one of American sports' great success stories. They have won five NBA titles — the most recent in 2014 — which is the fourth most in league history. They have made the NBA playoffs in 27 of the last 28 seasons. They have racked up 50 wins or more in 18 consecutive seasons (that streak would be 20 if the 1989-90 season had not been shortened to just 50 games by a lockout — their winning percentage of .740 at the time of the lockout would have easily eclipsed 50 wins over a full 82-game season).
