An excerpt from the book:

When looking at what most basketball players are looking to do when it comes to their future in the sport, the brightest stars are often thinking about trying to elevate their game to be noticed by what many consider as the best programs in college basketball. And with the evolution of technology, it seems easier for someone to have their highlight videos noticed by scouts from programs at Duke University, the University of North Carolina, or Syracuse University. Back in the 1980s, it was significantly harder to get noticed.

However, most programs would have never been expected to develop a player who would become one of the greatest in the National Basketball Association. Players like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson were not likely to put programs like the U.S. Naval Academy at the top of their respective wish lists when it came to college basketball recruiting. However, David Robinson is more of a unique case than many would think. For one, basketball was never really a passion for him, and he only played one season in high school before he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, following in his father’s footsteps. He also jumped up in height from below six feet as a freshman and all the way up to nearly seven feet when he first walked on the campus in Annapolis, Maryland.

Nor did Robinson think he was going to have a future in basketball, despite winning the Wooden Award in 1987 and being a top choice in the 1987 NBA Draft. But Robinson would have to wait two years before making his professional basketball debut because of his obligation to serve two years as an active duty member of the Navy. Many thought it was an unusual situation and wondered if the San Antonio Spurs made the right choice. For the Spurs, the results were well worth the wait.
