Although Sam Cassell and Ray Allen were every bit his equal in terms of importance to Milwaukee’s “Big Three” who reached the Conference Finals in 2001, it was Big Dog who set the table for that team’s success.
Drafted as the first overall pick in the 1994 NBA Draft, Robinson hit the ground running as a Buck and never looked back from there. Looking at his time in Milwaukee as a whole, Robinson’s consistency in terms of production regardless of the caliber of his teammates is truly impressive.
Only once in Robinson’s eight seasons as a Buck did he fail to average over 20 points per game and with steady rebounding production to go along with that, it seems fair to say that Big Dog was unlucky to have only two All-Star appearances to his name.
Robinson’s time as a Buck came to an end when he was traded to the Hawks in 2002. For the previous eight years the former Purdue Boilermaker averaged 21.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists on 46.3 percent shooting.
