2. David Robinson (1388)

David Robinson, also known as The Admiral, was a force on both sides of the floor. He came in as a grown man after serving two years in the military after being drafted by San Antonio in 1987 and his athleticism was off the charts, especially for a man of his great size at 7'1, 236 pounds. He is the only big man to make the top five.

When you combine that with the fact that he is only four steals behind the number one player on the list despite playing in 70 fewer games, it puts into perspective how talented Robinson was. He averaged 3.9 blocks in his rookie season and pulled down 12 boards per game while averaging 23 points.

There is a reason he was one of the few players to unanimously win Rookie of the Year. He added eight All-Defense Team selections, a Defensive Player of the Year award and an MVP to his resume before he was done.
