His “hype” could be similar to that of a Zion Williamson, right? Because if the two players have nothing in common a priori, they are both freaks of nature. Remember Robinson.
A mountain of muscle… 2.16 meters tall! A giant carved out of marble, with engines in his legs—a very athletic, powerful, agile, mobile, and technical pivot.
They don’t make them like that anymore. A rare phenomenon. Gone or almost. He would be a Joel Embiid in the current NBA in more vital. Can you imagine?
But rather than inventing a story that does not exist, let’s focus on the one that took place between 1987 and 2003, from his draft, in the first position obviously, to his retirement after a new title with the San Antonio Spurs.
Let’s go even further back in time in the early 80s. When the Florida native was still a five-foot-tall high school student, he briefly tried his hand at the orange ball.
Before quickly giving up. An excellent student, but not necessarily a sportsman. Or not a basketball player, instead. Until his senior year, after a growth spurt.
And then, the revelation. He is the best player on his team. But it was too late and too little to catch the eye of effective college programs around the country.
No Duke, North Carolina, or Georgetown – the home of the pivots – for him. He went to the Army and, more specifically, the Navy.
David Robinson even managed to lead the Naval Academy to the Final Four in 1986. A year later, he was drafted. The Spurs selected him in the first position.
The beginning of a great career? The Lieutenant made two years of service before landing in the pros, not yet hired.
He arrives in an unforgiving environment with a degree in mathematics and an engineering job. That’s not the same as in the NBA.
