Abdul-Jabbar was named the Finals MVP that season after averaging 27 points and 18.5 rebounds per game. Robertson contributed 23.5 points, 9.5 assists and five rebounds per game as the Bucks swept the Washington Bullets 4-0.
After playing his first 10 seasons with the Cincinnati Royals, Robertson finished up his career in Milwaukee, teaming with Abdul-Jabbar for four seasons before retiring in 1974.
Robertson also spent time Wednesday with '71 championship teammates Bob Dandridge and Jon McGlocklin and posed for a photo with University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari.
