I was doing a little research on the guy. And hes really starting to prove he can be good. He had one of the best combine results out of anyone as well.
"If he won't be the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, Thomas Robinson is expected to be the second big selected.
Robinson was about two hours late for his 1 p.m. scheduled media appearance at the Draft Combine in Chicago on Thursday. Scheduled at the same time as expected No. 1 pick Anthony Davis, Charlotte media folks were quick to establish positioning at Robinson's table, hoping Davis would absorb the crowd.
Instead, those waiting for Robinson saw Davis come and go with 22 other prospects over the next hours before Robinson appeared.
After about five minutes of not really being worth the wait, Robinson was asked about Davis' T-shirt, which read, "CHECK THE STATS."
"If you check the stats, I'll be the number one pick -- easily," Robinson replied. "I should wear a shirt that says: 'Numbers Don't Lie'."
He added: "I think I play at a different level than everybody else. A different intensity level. Everybody don't show up every night. I'd say I'm one of the players that do."
When asked if he would take out frustrations on teams that pass on drafting him, he replied: "I'm gonna try to kill everybody."
Hes definitely confident and seems like he can back it up. Seems like he may have something to prove in the NBA. If I were the Blazers I would be trying very hard to obtain that #2 pick.
Should we package Aldridge and #11 to OKC for Westbrook? TRob And Westbrook would be amazing...Don't get me wrong I love LA but if TRob panned out and became a star...Oh a man can dream.
