51. Because they sacrifice for the sake of ‘team’. David Robinson takes a pay cut so Tim Duncan can be resigned. Tim Duncan takes a pay cut in order for the Spurs to sign better support players. How often have you heard this from a team that constantly wins 50 or more games a season for years? How often have you heard this from a team who are already great, take pay cuts to make their team better? We, the true Spurs fans, already knew the Spurs were the best sports franchise in all known sports and the rest of the world is finally starting to catch up. Frankly, I love the Spurs because Duncan waits for each of his teammates to leave the floor when the game is over and he occasionally exercises his hands by palming their heads. What a guy!
