Spurs’ Duncan, Parker & Ginobili Reach Milestone
The San Antonio Spurs' trio of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili records a milestone on Sunday (Nov. 1), when they combined for their 541st victory, reports ESPN.
The mark allows the group to move past Boston's trio of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish (540 wins) for the most wins by a threesome in NBA history.
"It's awesome," Parker said Friday when the club tied the Celtic's trio . "God bless to play all those years with Manu and Timmy and coach [Gregg Popovich] is just a great accomplishment."
Duncan, Parker and Ginobili have appeared in the more games than any other trio in NBA history, and have the most wins together, followed by Bird, McHale, and Parish, and the Los Angeles trio of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson and Michael Cooper (490 wins), according to Elias Sports Bureau.
Additionally, Duncan and Popovich have posted the most wins (953) as a player-coach duo in NBA history, followed by Karl Malone and Jerry Sloan, and Sloan and John Stockton.
