The 2000–01 NBA season was the Spurs' 25th season in the National Basketball Association, their 28th season in San Antonio, and their 34th season as a franchise.[1] During the offseason, the Spurs signed free agents Derek Anderson and Danny Ferry. The Spurs continued to be among the NBA's elite teams, winning 23 of their final 29 games to recapture the Midwest Division with a 58–24 record and posting a league best 33–8 record at home. Tim Duncan and David Robinson were both selected for the 2001 NBA All-Star Game. In the first round of the playoffs, the Spurs would easily defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves in four games. In the semifinals, they beat the 5th-seeded Dallas Mavericks in five games to advance to the Western Conference Finals, where they were swept by the second-seeded defending champion Los Angeles Lakers.

Following the season, Anderson was traded along with Steve Kerr to the Portland Trail Blazers for Steve Smith, Avery Johnson signed as a free agent with the Denver Nuggets, Samaki Walker signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, and Sean Elliott retired.
