Pages: 1 2

When approached with the topic of the greatest scoring NBA performances, one can only help but to reminisce of Wilt, Michael, and Kobe’s stellar achievements on the hardwood. But what about David Robinson? The San Antonio Spurs’ “Admiral” currently sits among the greatest with his 71-point performance on April 24, 1994, against the Los Angeles Clippers. Now, as if it wasn’t already enough to nearly score a basket for every minute played, Robinson laced up in one of the most innovative basketball sneakers of all time, the Nike Air Unlimited. Watch as associate editor, George Kiel III explains this feat and the importance of this sneaker in the mid-90s.

Mad respect to the Admiral... I feel like he isn't included in to many of great center conversations, despite his obvious skill and impact on the bball world. Def should be in top centers of all time... but being on San Antonio seems to be a curse in terms of exposure and legacy.
