David Robinson, NBA
San Antonio Spurs star David Robinson earned his nickname “The Admiral” the old-fashioned way—he went to college at the United States Naval Academy and served in the Navy after graduating. The Spurs drafted Robinson in the 1987 NBA Draft, but he didn’t suit up for the team until 1989, as he had to serve for two years in the Navy. Robinson served as a civil engineering officer at the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia before starting his career with the Spurs, where he spent his entire NBA career, winning two championships.
