The Admiral was worth the wait. San Antonio selected David Robinson with the top selection in the 1987 NBA draft, knowing full well he'd need to fulfill two more years' commitment to the U.S. Navy. Robinson arrived in the NBA in the 1989-90 season, where he earned the Rookie of the Year award and delivered the best single-season turnaround in NBA history (the Spurs were 21-61 the year before, but 56-26 with the addition of Robinson). "The Admiral" was a member of the gold medal-winning "Dream Team" at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, and won a pair of NBA championships. Robinson was a 10-time All-Star and the 1995 NBA MVP, and is considered an absolute lock for the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame.
