Overview

David Robinson, nicknamed "The Admiral," was a 7'1", 235 lb. Center from the United States Naval Academy who played for the San Antonio Spurs. He was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2009. He is 6th in career blocks with 2954.

During his college years, he set NCAA records for block shots and rebounds. In his senior year, David won the Naismith and John Wooden award for best collegiate basketball player in the country. He was first overall pick in the 1987 NBA draft, but sat out two years to fulfill his military commitment to the U.S. Navy.

In his first full season in the NBA (1989-90), he lead the Spurs to a 35 win improvement and won Rookie of the Year. On the last day of the 1993-1994 season, David scored 71 points against the L.A.

He was a member of the Dream Team that won gold in 1992 Barcelona Olympics and is among the all time leaders in the NBA for scoring, rebounding, and block shots.

Since his retirement, the number 50 has been retired by the San Antonio Spurs. After his NBA career, David continued his philanthropic pursuits by founding the Carver Academy non-profit private school in San Antonio, Texas.
