4. David Robinson, San Antonio Spurs

While this list goes in order of worst to best Rodman teammate (in retrospect of his five best of his career), there is an asterisk that goes by the name of Spurs legendary big man David Robinson. As one of the absolute greatest big men to ever play in the NBA, Robinson would likely go up higher on the list, challenging for one of the top three.

This 7-foot-1 and 235 pound Key West, FL, native was the first overall pick of the Spurs in the 1987 NBA Draft. Robinson would play each one of his almost 1,000 career regular season games in a Spurs uniform.

During his run with the Spurs, Robinson would be a 10-time All-Star selection, 10-time All-NBA honoree, two time NBA Champion, eight-time All-Defensive selection, Rookie of the Year, MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, rebounding, blocks, and scoring champion. Robinson was able to do a little bit of everything during his 13 years with the Spurs organization.

Robinson was in the midst of his All-Star caliber years with the Spurs when Rodman was in town. But it didn’t seem like Robinson felt like Rodman was a good fit with the way San Antonio was rebuilding their franchise in the early-to-mid 1990’s. These two were teammates while the Bulls all-time great shooting guard was off playing baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization.

During the 1993-94 season (which was the best for Robinson of the two with Rodman), he averaged an NBA best 29.8 points per game, 10.7 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3.3 blocks, while shooting 50.7 percent from the field and 34.5 percent from beyond the arc. He would be an All-Star both years that Rodman was his teammate.
