On this week’s episode of Undeniable with Joe Buck, San Antonio Spurs legend David Robinson was a guest and spoke about Dennis Rodman.

David Robinson remains one of the greatest players to wear a San Antonio Spurs jersey. Upon joining the team in 1989, two years after being selected in the 1987 NBA Draft, he accumulated team records, made the playoffs in almost every season and won the 1999 and 2003 NBA championships, before retiring after the latter victory.

From 1993-95, Robinson played with Dennis Rodman. They worked as the team’s dynamic center-power forward combination, both finishing with double-digit rebound averages in their two seasons together.

On Wednesday, the Admiral will be a guest on Undeniable with Joe Buck. During the upcoming show, Robinson spoke glowingly about Rodman:

“I love Dennis. I really do. He’s an unbelievable player and incredibley athletic. He was like Superman and a freak of nature. The guy could run all day long, never got tired and was, like, the Energizer Bunny. I loved having him next to me on the court because you just felt like you have a warrior with you. On the court, he was a great guy to have next to you.”

Robinson went on to say Rodman was a different guy off the court, but how he “he marches to the beat of his own drum.” The full clip can be viewed below:

Aside from the playoff appearances, Robinson and Rodman accumulated a 117-47 record together, before the latter man was traded in an offseason deal to the Chicago Bulls, winning three NBA championships.

For Rodman’s career, he averaged 7.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game across 14 NBA seasons for the Spurs, Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks.. Robinson had 21.1 points and 10.6 rebounds in 14 seasons, all for the Spurs.
