David Robinson's muscles had muscles. Guy was huge, he was one of most jacked nba players ever. In general he was almost perfect athlete. Huge 7'0, crazy mobility, ability to run the floor, shoot, he also had great tehnique and was apsolute monster.
There are Cs today who weight as much as him or more, or have muscles, but nobody looks like him
Guy had quadra double in one game, during his prime he blocked more elite dunkers than probably anybody not named Mutombo ( and dunked some nasty stuff on Mutombo ) . He also made non other than Jordan ducking in transition in fear of poster
Robinson was an incredible specimen, athlete, player, human being...but, smart to cut his legs out of the shot. He was not bullying anybody in the post. He was jumping over, lateral movement, speed...Isaac is a good comparison (I hope) for body type/potential. Vuc would post Robinson if they met and bump him around. Different type of Center. I like Isaac quick and switchy, tip of the spear on the perimeter. A little more muscle is great but no need for bulk...Again, I love him, Robinson, Garnett style physique...but not the body to bang with Vuc, Gasol types.
ISaac should look at Siakam. Siakam has similar body style and plays fine.
Great idea...hybrid forward, Garnett too...Robinson had a guy named Tim Duncan to do the heavy work inside...also why Bamba, while intriguing, is far from a sure thing inside- regardless of wingspan.
