Robinson Joined on Stage by George Gervin, Larry Brown

David "The Admiral" Robinson was the first player to speak at tonight's Hall of Fame Induction ceremony. Robinson gave an impromptu speech, and spoke very highly of those that paved the way for his basketball career - including Tim Duncan, whom Robinson said he prayed for when the Spurs had the opportunity to draft. He was joined on stage by former Spur and Hall of Famer George Gervin and Larry Brown, the Hall of Fame coach. 

The Admiral was always known as an incredibly religious man, and vocalized his faith to conclude the speech. Robinson finished by referencing a Bible passage, and giving his blessing to the crowd.
