As of 2014, the San Antonio Spurs have won four NBA championships, according to the NBA website. The team took the top spot in the 2007, 2005 and 2003 seasons, as well in the 1999 season, which was shorter because of a players' strike.
As of 2014, the Spurs are led by Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli and Tony Parker. Coach Greg Popovich, one of the coaches with the best records in NBA history, took over the team in 1996 and is credited with generating the best performances from the three star players as well as those on the bench. The team lost a heartbreaking game against the Miami Heat in 2013, resulting in a loss of the finals.
