35 ppg... 12 rpg... & 5 dimes ring any bells? It was obviously not working.
In the autobiography, Rodman said that in the locker room, prior to the games, Robinson was visibly shaking. Whether that was from adrenaline or from a triple espresso shot, I dunno.
Again, if Rodman was some all-world defender that neutralized any top offensive threat, who better than Hakeem Olajuwon at his absolute peak?
That the Spurs stuck with Robinson, despite getting torched every game, says more about this hypothetical scenario than anyone realizes.
