Thomas Robinson is a beast.
 
28 and 12. Kid is a monster. I think I pick him at 3 after Davis and Barnes.

He has a nose for the ball. Maybe too short but I love his intensity.

Barnes is overrated. He doesn;t shoot that great of a percentage and relies on his jumper. I like his size and strength and jumper though

This. The kid has nothing that sticks out really. (Marvin Williams)

He had a bad game vs. Virginia. He makes some great shots but he seems to disappear at times. Still would probably pick Barnes but the more I see Robinson the more I'm impressed.

He'll be better than Marvin.

He shoots 47% of the Field and 42% from 3.

You do realize hes a Small Forward?

He plays away from the basket, he isn't LeBron.

The 1 thing that stands out the most about Barnes is his character/work ethic. Barnes is a kid who wants to be great and is willing to put in the work to become perfect. There is a reason a NBA scout who was there to watch him at the Hoop Summit likened him to a taller Kobe Bryant. You just cant teach those intangibles of a kid his age seeking self perfection. He got stronger in the offseason and improved his game and at only 19 its hard to find a player like that.


Please dont even compare him to Marvin Williams because they are 2 completely different players. Marvin was never "polished" with a legit skillset nor was an impact player in the college ranks. He was an athlete with the upside to be a versatile 3/4 in the NBA and was drafted far too high in one of the dumbest draft moves in NBA history.

he had a couple of bad games this season around the anniversary of his mom's death

Bill Self took him aside apparently and had a long heart to heart with him and since then he's been playing like a man possessed
