If Robinson wasn't on the team, they wouldn't have won. So he was really important. Just his size next to Duncan was enough to disrupt the Ewing-less Knicks.

Meant he hacked a lot. Refs let him get away with it. Kind of like when they let Shaq get away with elbows and shoulder charges.

But no way was he the player that you're saying. I agree about the Spurs not winning anything with no Admiral.

'99 was the last year he was effective? He put 18/10, 51% with elite defense for the season in 2000. Averaged 22/9 in 8 games without Duncan and the Spurs went 5-3. Robinson led the Spurs in scoring during the second half of the 2000 season with averages of 21/9 on 54%. He had a slow start that year due to back problems, and Pop wanted more offense out of him which explains his second half play. He was still a top 15 player, imo, and still around top 20 in 2001. Nobody doubts Duncan was the Spurs best player, but Robinson was a legit all-star center, and DPOY-caliber defender.

Yeah I got what you meant, I was just messing with you. I think Shaq's bows on every post up were much worse. I'm surprised Mutombo doesn't have brain damage.

Robinson played like shit once again in the playoffs in 2000. His back just made him ineffective a lot. He still was a good player.

He Was The Best Rim Protector, Shot Blocker and Defender in the League and Easily a Top 5 Player All Around Wise. Despite Him Losing Feel In the Offensive Side Sadly to Injuries that Limited Him and Prevented Him From Being His Old Self, Defensively, He Was THE BEST IMPACT DEFENDER IN THE LEAGUE.

Robinson was the best and most impactful defensive player in the league in 99. Alonzo Mourning got the DPOY, but Robinson was the best. Big 50 doesn't know what hell he is talking about. (like always)

Odd considering it's his favorite team, and favorite player.

That run in '99....is it me or do they get through some bad teams.

I mean, in the finals they have to play the Knicks whose starters were:

Alan Houston
Lattrell Sprewell
Charlie Ward
Chris Dudley
Larry Johnson

I know he wasn't prime Ewing, but having another big body there would have made a massive difference for the Knicks and he was still their regular season points and rebound leader (17/10). What could have been.

Pretty sure Camby was starting too by the way.

True that. Ewing's injury was a massive blow. Camby was just an okay player on that season though.


Point is, SAS did go through a relatively easy journey that year.

He was a great player and a great example.Robinson was still capable of scoring 20 points,but sacrificed his stats for the betterment of the team.

He was capable of playing great defense,but didn't make the All-Defensive Teams because he played limited minutes.

'99 team is my favorite Spurs team. Young Duncan-Robinson-Sean-Elie-Avery would destroy today's NBA

I said he wasn't elite in 99. Said he was effective. Said they don't win the ring with no DROB.
