Yeah, there's no more nice guy, because it's nap time.

He is the Tim Hardaway Jr of this draft.

I think Hardaway is a much more selfish player than Robinson. Robinson is more of a team player and probably defers a bit too much to his teammates. He will make the spectacular athletic play, but he hasn't shown he can create his own shots, and he needs to stop disappearing for long stretches. He likely is the most physically gifted player from that team.

no more mr nice guy? his play on the court says otherwise.

he didn't improve enough from yr to the next both in term of perimeter skill and demeanor. this was supposed to be he and mcgary's team and it became nik and levert's.

he's interesting, he should have been much more dominant.

Physically, he's really not that far off from Wiggins, similar size, vert, probably not as quick. And he has similar issues, handle, creation, assertiveness, aggression.

He's been a little inconsistent but he has a good stroke and range, he was tops at the combine for the shooting drills. He's got a ton of potential, it's amazing how far he dropped this year, but that just shows you how much each year of underwhelming progress does to 'potential'

I don't know how good his defence is at this point, but if a team really got him focused on that, he could be a great 3 and D guy and a slasher. He's got all the tools for that right now. He reminds me a bit of Wes Johnson and a little bit Ariza. Lots of potential but ones that tend to disappear for stretches. He's not a bad pick though late first, could end up being a huge steal if he puts it together. Or he could be the next Pat Ewing Jr.

I still wish he showed more guard skills. He's got solid wingspan for the 3, but his standing reach and 6'6.75 height are not good. He's on the small side for a 3 who's going to be a 3 and D guy. I think I'd prefer Hairston over Robinson. And Deandre Daniels is probably a better bet to be like Ariza.

Standing reach and vertical both better than Matt Barnes. I think he can be solid just like Matt Barnes.
