In the modern era we’ve gotten used to power players like Charles Barkley, LeBron James, Karl Malone, Blake Griffin and, most recently Zion Williamson.
Things have changed a lot.
In the 1970s, a guy who was 6-7 and 225 could be a power player.
That was Leonard “Truck” Robinson and the nickname was supposed to suggest that he more or less ran over people.
He was a powerful player though and pretty athletic by the standards of the day.
Robinson averaged 15.7 rebounds in 1977-78 and averaged 24.2 ppg the following year.
He had an interesting game because he even in that era he was smallish for a power player but he also had the mobility of a smaller player.
It’s just funny to look back and realize that he was universally acknowledged as a powerful player despite being 6-7 and 225. If he played today, he would probably end up spending a fair amount of time in the backcourt.
Then again, the joy of basketball is that people can play to their strengths, so maybe he could have made it work.
