We all know that Leonard has taken Robinson minutes. I first didn't want to question Stotts, but now that we have been playing pretty bad as of late, I can lol
The losses have nothing to do with Leonard, but I feel the players frustrated with Leonard. Mo Williams has been the one I see constantly showing negative body language towards Meyers decisions. Robinson was like an energizer bunny when he got mins. A lot of times he ignited a fire through the team. He gave it his all every play. His crazy blocks, put-back dunks, his attack the paint attempts, all hyped the crowd, and the Blazers. The past couple of games the Blazers have been playing pretty lazy/sluggish. It's not Leonards fault, but Robinson could help energize the team. He did in our only Phoenix win.
Basketball wise, you're not losing anything when T-Rob is in. Leonard has improved his rebounding, but Robinson is a a PROVEN rebounder. Meyers can stretch the floor, but Robinson has actually shown a better jumper THIS YEAR. Both are decent Mid Range shooters, Meyers can shoot the 3, but hasn't been successful yet.
Robinson was doing well, and it seemed he was getting better game by game. IF it's not broke, why fix it, Stotts?
I'll leave you with this,
22-4 with Robinson, 2-3 with Leonard (lolololol)
