Im somewhat torn, even though im leaning toward david
Rebounding is pretty much a wash. Garnett is the better passer (Drob was a very good passer too), id say the scoring edge goes to Robinson(even though there were times where I feel his scoring was 'exposed' in the playoffs; e.g Utah in 94, Portland the year before, and then against Denver and Houston in 95, and then against Utah the following year). They're 2 of the best defenders ever, KG being more versatile on the that end while Drob defended the paint better(I feel overall defensively the edge goes to Drob). Both are 2 of the most skilled big men ever, and Robinson is arguably the most athletic centre of all time. I guess it may depend on what your team needs...
KG is one of the most versatile players ever and displayed some great skill on the block and was of course a great outside shooter. David was quite versatile himself and was a great face up player but could also do work in the paint.
Both were among the greatest ever, but IMO, KG was the better player. In fact, had Garnett not been saddled with putrid rosters, and in his prime seasons, and instead had jumped ship to another quality organization sooner, he may very well have had a Top-10 all-time career. His 07-08 season with the Celtics is pretty indicative of "what could have been."
DRob was arguably more gifted than both KG and Duncan, problem was Admiral wasnt a fierce competitor. Mental aspect is as important as physical gifts.

You probably arent aware KG was by far the best closer on the championship team (yes, much more clutch than Pierce and Ray), and his career clutch data is a carbon copy of Duncan's.
Its a team sport, and if compared to competition you have a crap team, you wont win regardless how good player is. Jordan himself was bounced in the 1st round many times, was it his fault too? Get some perspective.
