The San Antonio Spurs are no strangers to the NBA’s June dramatics, but it used to be a 7-foot former Navy man leading the perennial south Texas team to pro basketball’s championship round. Hall of Fame center David Robinson built the house that the Spurs rule.

These days, however, the Spurs have proved to be in good hands with Tony Parker and the Mr. Robinson protege, Tim Duncan, who bolster the Western Conference Champions as they take on the defending champs from the East, the Miami Heat. The 7-game Finals will pit the old guard Spurs against LeBron James’ emerging dynasty.

But while the tall and talented Robinson built the metaphoric house that the Spurs continue to thrive in, it appears his former San Antonio home is once again for sale. Robinson sold his home at 1 Admirals Way, San Antonio, TX 78257 in January 2012, and it appears to be on the market once again — this time for $7.5 million. The lavish 8-bedroom, 12-bathroom, 12,500-square-foot masterpiece is being marketed as “Exclusively. Impressively. Decidedly. Available.”

The house was first quietly marketed for sale in 2011, when Robinson and his wife decided to move to Huntington, another exclusive neighborhood in San Antonio closer to the school their three sons attend. Built in 1997, the gated home hit the MLS late last month and will require a special buyer, as the median list price of homes in the Dominion neighborhood is around $594,000.

For Robinson, life after the NBA has been almost as rewarding as his championship days as a player. Inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame in 2009, Robinson is set now to be inducted into the 2013 class of the international Hall of Fame, known as FIBA.
