No team means more to me than the San Antonio Spurs, with Tim Duncan being one of my all-time favorite players. It’s the first NBA team that I can actually say I fell in love with, and I’ve been a fan since he entered the league to play alongside David Robinson (The Twin Towers). I’ve always appreciated the integrity the San Antonio Spurs have upheld, for that I will continue to be a fan.
