    Itís crazy, but he should be rated higher.

    Iím actually worried if Kawhi reaches the finals this year, media would basically say Kawhi is the 2nd best player to ever play in a spurs uniform. Heís already ranked in the 22-27 range with only two championships.

    i wonder if robinson fans are just too old to be involved in these list...

    Same.

    I reckon once kawhi wins another ring they will put him above david. Is that fair?

    I can see why they would, mainly because of recency bias, but I wouldn't. He still has a lot of catching up to do with The Admiral in accolades.

    Robinson is in the 15-20 range. The main advantages he has over Kawhi are:

    +MVP season
    +Scoring le
    +71 point game
    +Quadruple double
    +Bigger and more athletic

    Kawhi's main advantages:

    +Finals MVP
    +Being the best player on a champion team

    At this point clearly Robinson. As Leonard has low averages in his career.

    Why David is discredited. I think it is stereotypes media/players had of him. David was highly intelligent for NBA player and had charisma. His influence should have gone beyond sports. At that time such a package was seen as soft. Barkley joins West and makes Finals. Half the size of David the statue.

    Not your usual NBA superstar + Tim Duncan came after him + people remember Hakeem going at him + recency bias
    But as others said he's actually Top 20, so skilled for someone so athletic

    I said D-Rob would've been GOAT if he had learned how to shoot (consistently). I said the same thing about Shaq.

    Oh, well.

    The Admiral also led the league in rebounding and blocks as well, along with so many more accolades.

    He should have joined the Bulls and racked up some easy rings like Durant.

    There were actually internal discussions at one point by the Bulls FO to call the Spurs and offer Michael Jordan for David Robinson in a trade. It was believed back then that The Admiral would become one of the NBA's 10 greatest players ever.

    Didn't play in the big market or win until Tim came along. No high profile rivalries either, other than the beating he got from Hakeem. Ewing was trying to get past MJ and the Bulls.. Reggie and the Pacers..

    Not to hijack your thread, but why would anyone consider S bag's last and possible future (in the current scenario) championships legitimate?

    Those rosters were only formed because he intentionally destroyed his value, then blackmailed another franchise. In both cases, he ends up with the most complete team in the league and in the case of the former, lucks into the prohibitive favorites being decimated by injury in the Finals. Contrived = tainted.

    Unfortunately, if he tacks on a few more, he'll not only be wrongly consensus ahead of Robinson, but probably Duncan too by the mainstream/casuals.

    Robinson, Stockton, Paul and Ginobili, are the most underrated among that ilk.

    People, i know David is a Spurs Legend, and we all love him, but lets be honest. Without much thinking, everyone who at least has some knowledge about past greats, can name 20 Players which were better than David.

    If Robinson played in today's NBA instead, he'd be in talks of greatest ever.

    With like the 3rd highest paid roster in the league. Pretty sure Robinson could've done that too.

    Another victim in the war of cir stances. Give Robinson the supporting cast other greats have had and he's easily regarded as a top 10 player of all-time right now.

    Heck, I know I'm gonna stir the pot here but swap Robinson and Duncan's career timelines (Duncan debuts in '89 and Robinson debuts in '97. Everything else stays the same, supporting cast wise) and Robinson probably is rated higher than Timmy right now.
