Portland Trail Blazers: Thomas Robinson Video Explaining Development and Playing Time

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Blazersedge takes a close look at Thomas Robinson's effectiveness and technique, reveal subtle ways his habits and decisions might be short-changing his potential impact.

Ever since Thomas Robinson's explosive, game-changing outing against Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Blazersedge Mailbag inbox has been full of questions reflecting two themes:

1. If Robinson is capable of this kind of impact, why isn't he playing more?

And...

2. If Robinson is capable of this kind of impact, WHY ISN'T HE PLAYING MORE???

Thomas Robinson is talented.   Thomas Robinson is even brilliant upon occasion.  As one might expect of a young player, Thomas Robinson also demonstrates traits that keep him and his team from taking full advantage of that talent and brilliance.  These make the decision to play him more complex than it appears to the naked eye.  This video breakdown will help illustrate that complexity and perhaps answer some of the "Why isn't he playing more?" questions.  Enjoy.
