Spurs fans would forever remember David Robinson as the former U.S. Navy ensign who turned around a struggling NBA franchise.

The father-of-three, nicknamed as "The Admiral," was a central figure during his first six NBA seasons leaving behind a legacy similar to Hakeem Olajuwon and Patrick Ewing.

However, Robinson's legacy wouldn't be forgotten as his sons deemed it fit to pursue respective careers in sport. The one-time NBA Defensive player of the year is father to three sons, David Jr., Corey, Justin.

Although all three have excelled in having a career in sports, recent social media photos confirmed fatherly support through the years.

In a recent tweet from David, he seemed to be having a pleasant time with his son, David Jr. as they watched the NBA all-star game.

On the other hand, Corey looked bright as always in a picture on his Instagram page as he wore sunglasses and earphones as he left everyone guessing in his caption, "what are the odds I'm listening to Drake?"

Corey, a former junior wide receiver at Bowl-bound Notre Dame, quitted football after suffering three diagnosed concussions in the last year.

However, the former "Notre Dame" athlete reentered the world of sports after joining NBC Sports Group as a reporter and digital correspondent. In recent times, Justin, a fifth-year senior, has been living up to expectations at the Duke basketball team.
