Robinson Studying Millsap To Learn How To Be Effective Undersized Big

Dec 07, 2012 1:39 PM EST

Thomas Robinson has struggled to begin his rookie season, averaging 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
"My rookie season's not going exactly as I envisioned it, but I'm just trying to work my way out of it," Robinson said. "Trying to get back to where I want to be."

Robinson has been shown film of other NBA players he can model his game after.

"Once I got to the league, I figured I don't need to watch tape of guys in the league " Robinson said. "Now I realize I still need to; I still need to study other people. There's nothing wrong with studying film of guys (who are) better than you because there's a lot of bigs that are obviously better than me in this league."

The main player Robinson has studied is former second round pick Paul Millsap.

"He's an undersized big," Robinson said of Millsap. "He's got a lot of up-and-unders and can finish around the rim."
