25-year-old David Robinson started four games for the 1992 United States national basketball team. You probably know them as the Dream Team -- the squad where Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, to name a few, altruistically worked together to reassert the country's unbridled basketball dominance.   A young Robinson was a truly imposing force, a sight to see -- standing 7-feet-1 with the chiseled body of a Greek God and the athleticism of a shooting guard.    In eight games during the '92 Olympics, Robinson averaged nine points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.5 blocks while shooting 57.4 percent from the field.   Because of this, the former San Antonio Spurs center will be enshrined in the 2013 FIBA Hall of Fame on June 19 for his outstanding achievements in the international game.    "The 2013 Class of the FIBA Hall of Fame is truly a special one," said FIBA Secretary General and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member Patrick Baumann.   "These are great personalities who have experienced great success on and off the court, but who also stand out for the character they have shown and for the countless efforts they have made to help promote our sport.   "We look forward to welcoming them to the House of Basketball where they will be honoured."   After being inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009, a prestigious class including Jordan, John Stockton and Jerry Sloan, Robinson is just adding to his resume.    Slowly but surely.
