The list of San Antonio Spurs who have played in the NBA All-Star Game are some pretty well-known names. But the frequency of the franchise to have at least one player make the game has in the past been unprecedented. There have been eleven Spurs to make the All-Star Game.
The first clue comes from the players the article defines as being in the Spurs’ young core, with the players listed in the order their individual rankings (Position/Age/Contract): 1. Keldon Johnson (Wing / 21 / Three years, $8.1M, last year team option) 2. Derrick White (Guard / 26 / One year, $3.5M, then four-year, $70M extension) 3.
Johnson is still on his rookie deal, but he’s proved he’s ready for a big role. Lonnie has been a little lost in the shuffle but he will either have signed an extension or be in a contract year. And Vassell, the only Spurs lottery pick of the bunch, has showed that even as a rookie he’s ready for minutes.
