The 1999–2000 NBA season was the Spurs' 24th season in the NBA, 27th season as the Spurs, and the 33rd season as a franchise.[1] During the offseason, the Spurs signed free agent Terry Porter. Coming off their first NBA championship, the Spurs were still among the best teams in the West battling for first place in the Midwest Division all season, with Tim Duncan and David Robinson both being selected for the 2000 NBA All-Star Game. On March 14, the Spurs playoff spirits would get a lift when Sean Elliott, who received a kidney transplant prior to the season returned and played in the last 19 games. However, as the season wound down, Duncan suffered a knee injury as the Spurs finished second in the Midwest Division with a 53–29 record. Without Duncan in the playoffs, the Spurs lost four games in the first round to the 5th-seeded Phoenix Suns. Following the season, Jerome Kersey signed as a free agent with the Milwaukee Bucks.
