Yeah... Giannis isn’t the player D Rob was
The Admiral not taking the Spurs out of a stacked west where Houston and Utah routinely had better all-around talent until Tim Duncan got there is not the same as Giannis not being able to finish off the Raptors two years ago.
Put near-prime Robinson on that Bucks squad, and he can at least hit enough 15-17 footers to hold on to one of those leads from the four games they lost.
We really gonna hate on a nikka for not being able to get out of the Western Conference with soft-ass Sean Elliott, Vinny del Negro, and Avery Johnson as his best role players (outside Rodman, of course, but that fit in conservative-ass San Antonio was never going to work for long).
Personally, I'd take Mutumbo & Zo over him.Iffy on Ewing.He's another guy I wasn't all that big on.
Giannis is just as special.
And yes, Hakeem was clearly the better center with his legendary footwork and balance, but Hakeem also had dudes like Sam Cassell and Robert Horry on his squads (and later post-prime Clyde Drexler). Even dudes like Mario Elie were quality off the bench. SA just did not have that level of talent or depth in the supporting cast.
Mutumbo and Zo?
Nah you a hating ass nikka
Nah Admiral was a helluva human being.Type of dude you'd want your daughter to marry.Just never thought he was a killer on the court.That's just me, tho.You're opinion could be different.
Giannis dont have to bang with Shaq, Pat,and Dream,
Horry and Cassell were rookies the year the Rockets won. People leave out Kenny too.
Dream made the right reads and passes out of double teams, and those shooters came through but let's not say that the Rockets were stacked either year they won. Dream was just beasting offensively and defensively during both title runs. Drexler was doing his thing on ring 2.....but Dream LITERALLY saved the series by closing out on the PnR and altering Starks' shot in game 6.
Robinson gotta be one of the most overrated players
as a veteran mentor and good person? yes, definitely. he was not elite at the same time as duncan
robinson got sonned by olajuwon so bad that none of his shyt mattered at all
ewing was better than robinson
He averaged 16/10/2 with 1.4 steals and 2.4 blocks on 51% FG in the ‘99 season they won the chip.
The Twin Tower dynamic made it impossible to score on them.
D-Rob would make 2x All-Star games after this.
In that time period late 90’s, early 00’s name 5 “number two options” as impactful as D-Rob.
Duncan lucked out to play with a guy like Robinson and on a steady organization like the Spurs. He put them over the hump but he likely wouldn’t have that same success on a bottom feeding franchise.
The strike shortened ring against a Ewing-less knicks. That's more asterisk worthy than the bubble ring
It was impossible for the knicks to score on them because they had Camby Kurt Thomas chris dudley and a washed undersized (albeit awesome) LJ in their front court
Scoring in general was low then so Robinson's 16 looks good but Duncan was at 21
In the finals the knicks won one game. That was the game Robinson had 17 fukkin free throws and scored 25. He was the leading scorer and they lost. Story of most of his playoff career
