The time has come to talk about the major leagues and how difficult it will be for Victor Wembanyama to surpass the defensive excellence of this franchise when it includes characters like The Admiral. It's worth noting that achieving such numbers requires staying with the same team for almost your entire career. David Robinson spent 14 seasons in San Antonio, which allowed him to add almost 3,000 blocks throughout his career, thanks to his incredible physical dominance and height.

The admiral is a prime example of what Spurs culture represents, which values loyalty and perseverance. Robinson was a Spurs lifer and worked tirelessly until he finally won two championship rings. He was a jack of all trades but his primary role on the team was to defend the San Antonio basket, and he did so with great success.

Robinson was also known for being a prolific blocker league-wide. He ranks second in the history of the Spurs for blocks and sixth in the history of the NBA, with an average of 3 blocks per game over 14 years and almost 1000 games played.

Robinson's contributions to the Spurs and the NBA as a whole have not gone unnoticed. He has been inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in basketball history. His legacy lives on, and his impact on the Spurs and the sport of basketball will be felt for generations to come.
