David Robinson, Admiral Capital: The National Basketball Association recognized David Robinson as one of the 50 greatest players of all time in 1996 as part of the league’s 50th anniversary celebration. In his 14 years in the NBA as the starting center for the San Antonio Spurs, Robinson collected two championships, one Most Valuable Player award and 10 trips to the NBA all-star game.

In 2008 Robinson teamed with former Goldman Sachs executive Daniel Bassichis to launch the private equity firm Admiral Capital Group, which says it looks to earn profits while generating a positive social impact along the way. The firm currently oversees $50 million in real estate assets.
