Re: What is so good about thomas robinson?
Strengths: High-motor forward that possesses the power/athleticism combination to be an effective player in the NBA ... Explosive leaper ... Doesn't waste any time collecting himself when he catches the ball around the rim ... Great size for a power forward ... Has tremendous length with a 7'1" wingspan ... Strong -- though not bulky -- frame that can generate a lot of power in a hurry ... Very fluid runner ... Quick feet in the paint ... Is efficient and decisive in post-up situations, despite not being especially skilled with his back to the basket ... Aggressive mentality leads to a high number of free-throw attempts ... Has developed a solid right-handed hook shot that's become his go-to move from the left block ... A solid jump shooter, that is more than willing to take advantage of a defense that leaves him open ... A ferocious rebounder (averaged 11.9 rebounds per game in his senior season, good for second in the nation) ... Is particularly adept at chasing down his own misses ... Not afraid to wrestle with bigger players for better position ... Is active and athletic enough to rebound well out of his area ... Has all the tools to defend his position at a high level in the NBA ... Despite not being a very intimidating shot-blocker, he has been an effective defender against post-up situations ... Moves his feet well enough to stay in front of the more mobile power forwards in the NBA ... Hard worker that has improved noticeably every year at school ...
