Default David Robinson or Tim Duncan

Who was the better individual player at their respective peaks? Not careers as that answer is hardly anything but subjective, but their peaks.

I got Robinson, without hesitation.

I always hear ppl say David Robinson in the regular season at his peak. But you take Tim Duncan at his peak in the playoffs.

He's going with the "playoffs" argument, which is hilarious.

Robinson was fools gold. The answer is clearly Duncan because he stepped up on the biggest stage while Robinson was known for disappearing in the playoffs.

This. Although a bit harsh on Robinson. Still a first ballot HOFer.

Clearly?

Does that really take away from the fact that Robinson had years that made 03 Duncan look pedestrian, in comparison?

Default Re: David Robinson or Tim Duncan

always bothered me that a military officer was so mentally weak in sPORTs

brilliant guy, superior athlete,but NO heart

Robinson had the basketball IQ, talent, and physical skills to be one of the top players ever at his position


never came together for him after Dream "sank his battleship"

===========================================

TD at his peak was an unguardable player.....clutch... who led his team in all categories on the way to a ring..

the years that the Lakers beat Spurs in playoffs, was generally because Admiral didn't show up




robinson is by all accounts a great guy and that's why people are cutting him slack but answer is TD...

The goal is to be on your best game when it matters. The best players show up ready to be at their best.

In terms of pure size, physical talent, and athleticism, ... D-Rob without question. Hell, he was a better shooter, too.

But in terms of maximizing ability... Duncan.
