The 25 Greatest Shooting Guards in NBA History

23. Alvin Robertson

Career stats: 14.0 PPG 5.2 RPG 5.0 APG 2.7 SPG
Career accomplishments: 4x All-Star, 1x Defensive Player of the Year, 1x Most Improved Player, 1x All-NBA, 6x All-Defense
Team(s): Spurs, Bucks, Pistons, Raptors

One of the most underrated players ever, Robertson damn near averaged three steals a game for his career with 2.7. He's also one of five guards to win Defensive Player of the Year. In his second year, as a member of the Spurs, Robertson played all 82 games and took away 3.7 cookies per game from unsuspecting opponents.

But he wasn't all defense, he was also a slasher that dunked with authority and is one of four players in NBA history to record a quadruple-double (20 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals) when he did it on February 18, 1986 when he was a Spur against the Suns. He even had his own signature move in EA Sports' Bulls versus Lakers and the NBA Playoffs video game released in 1992.
