Jeremy is just the fifth rookie to start on opening night for San Antonio, joining Tim Duncan (’97), David Robinson (’89), Sean Eliott (’89) and Willie Anderson (’88).
His Spurs opened their 50th season in San Antonio inauspiciously, losing a season opener for only the third time under Gregg Popovich; they are a projected lottery team, with an average after of just 23.4 years, the youngest roster in Popovich’s 27 seasons as San Antonio coach.
