Into the NBA: The George Gervin
though there was some first cynicism in league circles about the potential achievement and talent levels of the inner bound ABA teams, the Spurs would show worthy of NBA during the 1976-77 season with a record of 44-38, fine for a tie for 4th position overall in the Eastern Conference, warning their draft chooses and television all through their early on time in the merged league.

throughout the 1977-78 seasons, George Gervin and David Thompson of the Denver Nuggets would battle every season for the NBA scoring title. That night-time Gervin knew he needed 58 points next to the Jazz in New Orleans. Gervin would get off to a outstanding start by scoring 20 points in the 1st Quarter.

Although, in the playoffs the Spurs would be astonished by the Washington Bullets in spite of an outstanding series.

The Spurs would go on to imprison 5 titles in their primary 7 years in the NBA and became a recurrent playoff. on the other hand, in the playoffs, the Spurs would discover a break, behind to teams like the Washington Bullets, the Houston Rockets, and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Because the 80s progressed, the Spurs would see their splits of highs and lows. For the initial few seasons, the Spurs sustained their achievement of the 1970s by means of records of 52-30 in 1980-81, 48-34 in 1981-82... In spite of their regular season achievement, the team is losing in the Western Conference playoffs to the Houston Rockets in 1981 and the Los Angeles Lakers in 1982 and 1983.

It may too mean Mohammed won't even to return.

The Spurs have his NBA rights, and may know how to buy him out of his contract with Tau Ceramica of the Spanish association.
