No.


You're right. My bad. I was getting tested at the allergist and trying to take my mind off of all the crazy itching up and down both arms. I must've misread "injury" for "surgery." I didn't even know he had a knee injury :lol:

He's basically what Serge Ibaka and Theo Ratliff were in their primes: a certified W in the BLKs category.

That's why I think he's almost best for roto. Efficient because he only dunks, rebounds and blocks the **** out of a lot. Will cut down turnovers, especially because he'll just never have them due to only dunking.

Plus, his FT isn't that bad either

Mitch is an intriguing player:

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/27698446/nba-six-most-intriguing-players


He also fouled the bejesus out of everyone. Clever ball-handlers baited him with eyebrow fakes and give-and-go trickery:

New York's coaches have hammered in a simple message: Be the second jumper. Don't leave your feet until you see the other guy get air.

"I hear that," Robinson says. "But with some guys -- Steph Curry, James Harden -- you can't wait."

...

On offense, he is a raw rim-runner thirsty for lobs. (You can sometimes catch Robinson leaping for a lob when no one has thrown one.) He seldom sets actual screens, preferring to slip early into the lane. He sometimes rolls full speed with his head down instead of starting and stopping to make himself a target. New York seemed fine with most of that, and Robinson sucks in a ton of attention -- creating open looks for shooters.

...

They also switched some, daring Robinson to beat them on the block. He couldn't. The Knicks scored just 0.79 points per possession on any trip featuring a Robinson post-up -- third worst among all players, per Second Spectrum tracking.


This focuses on some of the room for improvement points in his game.

how many actual mitch post ups were there ? it's gotta be a ridiculously low number

it's funny he mentioned he studied amare because that's who i've said before is kind of a best case scenario on offense for him. amare liked to slip the screen a lot too. you can see some of the similarities.

That is true. If it happened, usually something had gone wrong.

Also like Amare, I can ultimately see him having a bit more of a faceup game.

i honestly doubt it'd even be 1, if it was a play called for him to post up down low, unless there was a mismatch. i think post ups, with him, if anything, would've been him getting a long rebound about 5=8 feet from the basket

Wow! If Stat can show Mitch that little fake sideways, drop step slam.
