Robinson was capable of being the better defensive player but he isn't. Duncan is smarter and rarely leaves off the floor unlike DRob whom reacted way too aggressively for every intend.
Like it or not, in his best days Shaq was a dominant defensive force too. It took guts to penetrate against Shaq. He blacked out the entire painted area. If someone picks an elite defensive big over peak Shaq for defense, his opinion is just based on reputations.
But I recall your posts about Admiral and your claims about him being as good as his potential which he was not. So I won't be participating in this matter from now on.
