The 2005–06 San Antonio Spurs season was the team's 30th overall season, the 33rd in San Antonio, and the 30th in the NBA. The Spurs entered the season as the defending NBA champions, having defeated the Detroit Pistons in the 2005 NBA Finals in seven games, winning their third NBA championship, they began the season hoping to improve upon their 59–23 output from the previous season. They bested it by four games, finishing 63–19, and qualified for the playoffs for the ninth straight season.[1] After defeating the Sacramento Kings by six games in the first games, the defending champions faced their in-state rival Dallas Mavericks, they were pushed to seven games and the Spurs ended up losing the deciding game of the series.

Tim Duncan and Tony Parker were selected to play in the 2006 NBA All-Star Game in Houston; this is Parker's first All-Star game appearance.
