I think 99 is still my pick (I'm a bit of a Robinson fan) but this was a damn good team. Incredible execution in the Finals too, set the record for fewest turnovers in one game, and most threes in another I believe.

Definitely. The 99 team was really good also. Especially considering Robinson was still a great player. OT, but still remember TD and D-Rob both rocking the same kicks for awhile:

Someone's desperate

2003 easily shits all over 2013

Duncan might have actually gotten a quad double if 2003 played in the Finals

03 was largely a one-man show. Or do you have them above 2013 just because Duncan being that much better makes the difference in your book?

2003 Duncan would run a train on any current front court

Probably true, but his supporting cast was week. That's one of the greatest individual playoff runs we've seen.

The Spurs had some of their best teams in years they lost, like 2006 and 2013... but among championship teams, 2005 would be the best.

Not only did they get it done against great competition in the Finals, but they had the most formidable version of the Big 3 if you combine each player's input: Duncan still playing like the best in the league, Ginobili and Parker both healthy and playing at an All-Star or near All-Star level. They also had arguably the best perimeter defender in the league, Bruce Bowen, underrated role players like Brent Barry, a clutch god in Horry who could bail them out of any situation, and a serviceable C rotation.

1) 2005
2) 1999
3) 2007
4) 2013
5) 2003

2003 has the best version of Duncan, but it isn't their best team. Let's be honest. It was just a historic run by Timmy. His supporting cast that season was weaker than any of the other championship caliber teams.

Honestly, none of them have been as impressive as certain fans on ISH or elsewhere want to hype them up to be. They aren't a dynasty. Just a really, really good franchise.

If the 2013 Spurs had beaten the Heat they would have been the best team in their franchise history. Just look at the NBA Star players (Gasol/Randolph. Curry, Gasol/Howard, LBJ/Bosh/wade) FG% againts them in the playoffs. The 2013 spurs team were the best non NBA championship team in the last 15 years better than the 10 celtics, 08 lakers, 02 Kings, and 11 Heat.

IMO:

01) 07: Impressed me a lot, older team but were very versatile and had the ideal star trio (PG + Wing + Dominant Big)
02) 05: Like the 07 team but younger, Duncan wasn't 100% though, Robert Horry had his greatest game in the Finals
03) 13: Went toe-to-toe with a great Miami Heat team, very balanced and adjusted well in the playoffs
04) 99: Twin Towers, couldn't score on them, had a bunch of momentum after their shaky start
05) 01: Weaker version of the 99 team and ran into the greatest playoff team ever
06) 03: Monster Duncan: 116 ORTG and 92 DRTG in the playoffs)
07) 06: Parker broke out a bit in the regular season and then did what he does best: choke + Dirk And-1
08) 12: Best team in the NBA until they ran out of gas + when Sefalosha shut down Parker + when they couldn't get any stops
09) 04: Duncan had to adjust to life w/o the Admiral and wasn't as dominant, .04
10) 02: Tim Duncan show, similar to 2003 but the Admiral was injured and they were less dynamic than the 03 team
11) 08: End of their mid-2000s dynasty, their fans like to pretend that Ginobili being healthy would have changed the series outcome vs the Lakers, Bowen too old now)
12) 00: Things fell apart, Duncan got injured in the final game of the regular season
