David Robinson was my favorite NBA player. Ever. Of All Time. His lifestyle plus his ability (he ran like a freakin’ deer, strong as an ox in the paint) made him the perfect role model. There is only one other player that is in his category – Bill Russell.
Both guys were more concerned about winning than stats. Both men were gentle giants off the courts, dominating giants on.
Tim Duncan is making a push. If Tim can finish his career with the same team he started, value sportsmanship and excellence off the court as much as on the court, and keep dominating by playing basketball instead of wrestling matches – he’s in the top three.
Plus, everybody hates the Pistons. You can thank Isaiah Thomas and Bill Lambeer for that.
That, Mr. Anderson, is the sound of inevitability.
