    I gave a list earlier in this thread, but if I had to pick just 1.................David Robinson. Great athlete, served our country in the Navy, served our country in the Olympics, saved the Spurs from moving away from San Antonio, helped us win our first two titles, great humanitarian off the court.

    BTW, if you go back and look at the stats, the only player in the NBA that you could put ahead of him during his first 7 years (before the injuries wrecked his body) was #23 for the Chicago Bulls.

    I also believe with all of my being that had the second Bulls 3peat team had Robinson, 72-10 would have been 82-0...........how do you score on that starting lineup Robinson, Rodman, Pippen, Jordan, Harper......of course the same argument could be made for Hakeem as well.

    Robinson was a good guy on and off the court for sure. However, Olajuwon > Robinson on the court(including the first seven years).

    Having grown up in the Dallas area?

    I'll go with Dirk.

    And that's even with football being my #1 sport. I just love Dirk. Such a good guy.

    He was almost as good as David Pearson and Richard Petty.

    Good choice.

    Add Emanuel Rego and Alison Cerutti to my list. Emanuel's a legend. Alison just too cool.

    actually head to head, David was statistically better, slightly. To be honest, head to head they cancelled each other out. However, in the 95 WCF, everyone acts like DRob got owned. He didn't. He went solo against the Dream, but on the other end, David was double and triple teamed all series. Had the Dream gone solo on David, the two would have had identical numbers.

    instead of acting like it was Hakeem > David........it is actually Hakeem = David and Rudy T >>>>> Bob Hill

    I miss Bags and Biggio so much. Baseball has been extremely unwatchable without them.
