Robinson was a Better Post Defender, Shot Blocker, 1 on 1 Missmatch, Better at Running the Floor and Finishing. More Athletic.

Duncan was Stronger, A Better Rebounder, Better Passer, Better Post Player and Clutcher.

Very Close in Their Primes.

Duncan was better at running the floor. Barkley even said that Duncan is the best big man runner ever.

the Admiral was stronger, faster, better shooter, more athletic but...

- post moves
- body control
- touch around the basket
- craftiness

Duncan.

Verdict: Duncan by a decent amount.

ps:. to all those saying playoffs... slippery slope there; Duncan has had his share of failures. A few episodes of mental weakness as well. (closing moments of last year's game 7 come to mind)

OP asked for peak, right? Duncan's peak playoffs > Robinson's peak playoffs.

There is absolutely no-one that would choose DRob over TD in a draft while knowing what's coming. If you say you would, you're a total joke.

Good points but Duncan's the better option since his post offense is more reliable come playoff time compared to DRob's face up game. Robinson also scored a lot in transition which didn't help him come playoff time when the game slowed down. It's probably why he has such high regular season numbers and considerably lower post-season totals.

at penalizing someone for something they did at age 37. Robinson was out of the league at that age while Duncan was first team all-NBA. Only other players to be as effective as TD at that age were Kareem and Malone. If there's anybody on the Spurs that deserves blame for the Finals it's Popovich and Ginobili. Parker mostly sucked too outside of a few clutch shots. Everybody called him the Spurs MVP in the reg season and he averaged 15 ppg on low efficiency in the Finals.

D-Rob was obviously the better athlete.

Duncan was the better basketball player though, and I think that is an inarguable fact.
