SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - David Robinson, who won two NBA championships and a pair of Olympic gold medals, has been inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame.
Teammate Tim Duncan and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich were among the audience to see Robinson, still a popular figure in San Antonio because of his work in the community. Robinson thanked the Spurs organization for bringing so many people to the induction and acknowledged Duncan, calling him "my answer to prayer."
Robinson was the 1995 NBA MVP and helped San Antonio win titles in 1999 and 2003. He played on the 1992 Dream Team along with Michael Jordan and John Stockton, who also were in Friday's class, and won gold again in 1996.
Coaches Jerry Sloan and C. Vivian Stringer also were in the class.
