David Robinson is an American former professional basketball player who played for the San Antonio Spurs in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for his entire career. Robinson is a 10-time NBA All-Star, the 1995 NBA MVP, a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, a 10-time All-NBA selection, and a two-time Olympic gold medalist. He is widely considered one of the greatest centers of all time. To date, he is the only player from the Naval Academy to play in the NBA.
Robinson was born in Key West, Florida, on August 6, 1965, to Ambrose and Freda Robinson. He has four older sisters and one younger brother. When Robinson was a young child, his father was transferred to the Jacksonville, Florida area, where Robinson attended elementary and junior high school. In 1982, Robinson’s father retired from the Navy and the family moved to Woodbridge, Virginia, where Robinson attended high school.
Robinson played basketball for four years at Osbourn Park High School in Manassas, Virginia, and was twice named a Parade All-American. He was recruited by more than 200 colleges before choosing to attend the United States Naval Academy, where he played for head coach Paul Evans from 1983 to 1987. As a freshman at the Naval Academy, Robinson led the team in scoring and rebounding and was named the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Rookie of the Year.
In his junior year, Robinson was named a first-team All-American and won the Naismith College Player of the Year Award. He was also awarded the John R. Wooden Award as the nation’s top college player.
Robinson’s senior year saw him win his second straight Naismith Award as well as the Oscar Robertson Trophy and the Adolph Rupp Trophy. He was also named a first-team All-American for the third straight year.
After graduating from the Naval Academy in 1987, Robinson became eligible for the NBA draft. He was selected by the San Antonio Spurs with the first overall pick.
Robinson made an immediate impact in his rookie season, averaging 24.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 3.9 blocks per game. He was named the NBA Rookie of the Year and was selected to the All-NBA First Team.
In his second season, Robinson averaged 27.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game. He was once again named to the All-NBA First Team and was also named the NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
In 1990–91, Robinson averaged 29.8 points, 10.7 rebounds and 4.0 blocks per game. He was named to the All-NBA First Team for the third straight year and was also named the NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight year.
The 1991–92 season saw Robinson average 28.7 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game. He was once again named to the All-NBA First Team and was also named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the third straight year.
The 1992–93 season was shortened due to a labor dispute between the NBA players and owners. In 50 games, Robinson averaged 21.1 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game. He was named to the All-NBA Second Team.
The 1993–94 season saw Robinson average 25.6 points, 12.2 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game. He was once again named to the All-NBA First Team and was also named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the fourth straight year.
The 1994–95 season was Robinson’s best as a pro. He averaged 27.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game while shooting 52% from the field and 80% from the free throw line. He was named the NBA MVP and was also named to the All-NBA First Team and the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the fifth straight year.
In 1995–96, Robinson averaged 20.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game while shooting 50% from the field and 77% from the free throw line. He was once again named to the All-NBA First Team and was also named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the sixth straight year.
The 1996–97 season saw Robinson average 19.8 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game while shooting 49% from the field and 75% from the free throw line. He was once again named to the All-NBA First Team and was also named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the seventh straight year.
The 1997–98 season was shortened due to another labor dispute between the NBA players and owners but Robinson still managed to average 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks per game while shooting 50% from the field and 77% from the free throw line in 50 games played. He was once again named to both the All-NBA First Team and NBA All-Defensive First Team for an eighth straight year but this would be his final season being selected to either team as he would only be an All-Star from here on out until his retirement following 2002–03 campaign which saw him average 13 points per game in just over 25 minutes of action as he came off bench for first time ever in his illustrious career which saw him finish as Spurs all time leading scorer with 19,687 total points scored as well as leading rebounder with 10,497 which is second most in franchise history behind only Tim Duncan who would eventually pass him during his own illustrious career with Spurs which saw him win five NBA championships which is tied with Robinson for most in franchise history as well as being two time NBA MVP himself as well as three time Finals MVP which is something Robinson never accomplished during his own decorated career despite being one of best players of his generation as well as one of best centers ever as he is widely considered one of top 50 players of all time which is something that can not be said about Duncan despite his own greatness due in large part to playing during same era as Robinson as well as Shaquille O’Neal who is widely considered one of three best centers ever along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell who are considered top two players at that position respectively
