Robertson: “I didn’t do anything wrong”


Former San Antonio Spurs player Alvin Robertson spoke on the accusation of him playing a part in a sex-trafficking ring involving a 14-year-old girl.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” said Robertson about recent arrests for allegedly violating a protective order and accusations of human trafficking.

“I believe I’m getting unfavorable treatment because of my status and association with the Spurs,” said Robertson. (source

This isn’t his first time he has had issues off the court. In August 1997, he pled no contest to four misdemeanor charges of abusing a former girlfriend and was sentenced to one year in prison. He spent a month in jail in 1990 for beating his then-wife and was arrested again in San Antonio in 2007, on a variety of charges, several related to domestic violence.

It is unfortunate he is remembered for his off the court issues than on the court success.

Robertson played with the Spurs from 1984-1989 before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for forward Terry Cummings. He is also one of four players in NBA history to record a quadruple-double (20 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals against the Phoenix Suns on February 18, 1986) and the only player to do so with steals as the fourth category. He was also a four-time NBA All-Star, and a former winner of the NBA’s Most Improved Player Award and Defensive Player of the Year Award.
