'90s Highlights

The Admiral was one of the most athletic big men the game has ever seen. He could score, rebound and defend at nuclear levels. He once scored 71 points during the last game of the 1994 season to steal the scoring title from Shaq. San Antonio went from 21-61 in 1989 to 56-26 in 1990 after drafting Robinson, which was the biggest single-season turnaround in history (at the time). Robinson was a beast on the boards and blocked 3 shots a game for his career. He was unable to carry the Spurs to the promise land until they drafted Tim Duncan in 1997 Draft and won a title during the lockout-shortened season of 1999.
