Record: 37-13 (1st place in West); Won the NBA Championship!

Secretaries of Defense: Tim Duncan, David Robinson

D-Side Story: When young Tim Duncan joined forces with former DPOY David Robinson to form San Antonio's formidable Twin Towers', opposition caved in fear. The team rode the two bigs to the league's best record by holding opponents down to just .402 percent shooting from the floor all season, an NBA All-Time record. The Spurs won their first championship and Duncan was named to the first (of eight) All Defensive First Teams.
