Alvin Robertson (USA) – 1984 Olympics
With Los Angeles acting as the host city for the 1984 Games, a gold medal for the US was going to be particularly important.
Although Alvin Robertson’s legacy has been somewhat tarnished by issues that have surrounded him off the court, there’s no mistaking that he was an incredible player, and he showed early glimpses of that with team USA.
Robertson averaged 7.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.1 steals at the ’84 Olympics. The Ohio native’s most notable performance came against China as Robertson posted 18 points, six rebounds, four assists and a trademark six steals.
Before all was said and done in Robertson’s career he’d played in four All-Star games between his time with the Bucks, Spurs and Raptors.
