May 18 In San Antonio history…
Ground is broken for the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad.
The San Antonio Spurs draw the #1 pick today for the June 22 draft lottery. The Spurs plan to draft Navy’s David Robinson, who will not be available until 1989 after a two-year hitch in the Navy. A jubilant Bob Bass, General Manager, exclaims, “We waited 14 years for a No. 1 pick, so what’s two more years?”
Ten years to the day after winning the lottery that provided them with Robinson, the Spurs hit the jackpot again on the lottery that would provide them with Tim Duncan (Spurs majority owner Peter Holt, right)
