As a prelude to Thursday's Part 3 of the Uwe Blab series (the NBA days), the Effingham High graduate shares about playing with David Robinson on the 1989-90 San Antonio Spurs.

During that season, Blab fondly recalls bonding with Robinson over something that had nothing to do with basketball: "Now there was another nerd!"

Robinson's airport reading material consisted of a physics textbook, Blab says. As for Robinson's on-court abilities, even as a rookie he was virtually unstoppable in practice Blab says.
