[QUOTE]At the beginning of his career, Robinson came off the bench. He did not become a full-time starter until 1994............and since he was on PHO 3 years later........it is safe to say that he never started together with (the late) Kevin Duckworth, whose Trail-Blazer career ENDED in 92-93! Bye!!

The difference Red is that Mark tries to win an argument with a single black and white statement like 'what they were listed at' for 'most' of their careers.
Robinson played SF, PF and C. He was a swiss army knife. He shot a ton of 3's and guarded SF's... Kersey played in the paint and got more rebounds, despite being 2-3" shorter. Kersey was Brandon Bass, Robinson was Jeff Green.
Drexler has Kersey, Robinson and Kiki who could all play SF, he was listed as a GUARD-FORWARD, but played more SG, even though his game was more of a SF's, b/c of his teammates. Like Pierce when we had Wally or Eric Williams at the 3.
It is simple to see when an intelligent fan looks at the gray area and all the facts/stats... which Mark/Gina doesn't do.
I will take Ray's career and game as a SG head to head over drexler's...barely... when it all comes down to it. But really, I compare Drexler to guys like Gervin, Dominique, Vince Carter, Pierce, Elgin Baylor as far as style and Ray to guys like Sharman, Reggie, Mitch Richmond, Monroe, West and Sam Jones.
Apples to Oranges styles... big G-F who rebounds, slashes and is a mediocre shooter (esp from 3) vs a pure SG, better scorer, w/ some of the best shooting #'s of all-time.
I took him down
