Can y'all give reason why you guys chose Robinson? I'm just curious. I've watched both play and I feel that Ewing has better offensive skills than Robinson whereas Robinson was better on defense

Default Re: Robinson vs Ewing

If I was drafting, I'd take Ewing... But Robinson was probably slightly better overall. Ewing just felt like he could anchor a team better and was more of a strong leader.

They played each other 14 times between 1990-1997. The Knicks won 6, Spurs won 8. They put up virtually identical numbers.

Ewing averaged:
22.6 ppg
11.4 reb
2.7 ast
1.4 stl
2.9 blk
3.6 to
4.1 fouls

43.5% fg
68.2% ft
0/1 3s

He played 38.1 minutes per game.

====

Robinson averaged:
25.6 ppg
10.2 reb
3 ast
1.8 stl
3.2 blk
3.6 to
3.7 fouls

51.8% fg
65.3% ft
0/2 3s

He played 38.4 minutes per game.

------------------------------------------------

It should be noted that Robinson was given 147 free throws to Ewing's 66. That's pretty absurd.

FG% is the only statistically significant difference between the two head to head, and I'm sure Ewing deserved more free throws. He's a career 50+% shooter and I doubt Robinson's defense alone attributed to his 8% difference in FG%.

David Robinson was better than Patrick Ewing....but id rather build a team around Ewing(assuming both will be healthy).

I dont think David cared nearly as much and that....matters.

Agreed. Robinson was too religious in my opinion. He just couldn't be mean enough, and probably thought God had a plan for things so it was out of his hands a bit. (Not that I'm hating on religion or anything)

Like look at the way that Rodman became a scapegoat during his time their. I believe in some special (Beyond the Glory?) Rodman talked about how Robinson wouldn't talk to him but bitch to the media.

Dude just wasn't a strong leader.

Ewing tried to hold people accountable, like what he and Oakley did to Starks after the headbutt on Reggie. That's a big difference.

Not really. Patrick Ewing's game was shooting turn around jump shots. You aren't going to get fouled much doing that. Robinson on the other hand played mostly face up and was driving at the rim as pretty much no Center could stay in front of him so he was always fouled. He's one of the few centers who averaged a lot of ft's because he was so hard to stop getting to the rim and not because he was a bad ft shooter.

Not that it was all Rodman's fault (or anyone's for that matter) but Rodman was basically chasing after and ripping rebounds from teammates' hands that whole series. Rodman wouldn't even guard Horry on the perimeter. Still that shouldn't have been anything new to the team and the coach handled things very wrong.

Ewing was probably a better scorer but that's it. Robinson had a more complete game.

They're about dead even to me. I really liked Ewing's game at Georgetown and then when he entered the league, but about halfway through his career he became a primarily a jumpshooter, no longer attacking the rim. I liked Robinson's game a little better, but It could go either way. I personally liked Olajuwon and Shaq better than both.
