yeah, ok....a dime a dozen

Hey has anyone seen Bonga at the scrimmages? Do they even let him play? Lebron must scare him to death.

Robinson can’t shoot 3s. His stroke is remedial. Even if his stroke was decent, do u know how many Centers hit 3s consistently in workouts? A lottt. He’s hit a couple 3s in high school right? Not much more? Lol, far from a 3pt threat

It appears he is on the German National team although he is not getting court time. D Schroder (Okc), M Kleber (Mavs) and I Hartenstein (Rockets) are his teammates.

Similar situation as Zu on Croatia.

Kanter is on Instagram hitting 12 in a row. McGee does the same.. I view a handful of 3s in high school as this same dynamic

Never understood the attraction of having a 3 pt shooting center. In order of preference defense, rim protection, rebounding, passing and interior scoring are the attributes I prefer.

I personally would want my other 4 players to take 3 pt shots as they should inherently be more proficient at it.

Robinson has the potential to be an impact player without being a scorer. In hindsight would have preferred him to be Laker than Wagner and that is not a slight against Wagner. Just the impression I got from SL and not from his stats but what he flashed during games.

5-out spacing is a premium at the NBA level.

Yes I agree. I cannot think of a top level team that is offensively efficient with a center shooting 3's.

Small ball line ups where the centers are hybrid PF's I could see this being the case. Al Horford might be the only outlier although I feel he could play both C and PF.

If Horford was 7', that would be the ideal.

Looked more comfy today.
Had the bone headed play at the end. Hopefully that's his Kobe moment and it doesn't happen again

That last play was dumb, but I'll be somewhat fair because Lance put the team in a bad position at the end.

It was more that he's a point guard and doesn't want to shoot.

That's how a play like that happens. His first instinct is "I can't shoot, better pass." and he thought about that before he thought about the clock and that's a no no.

I thought he looked pretty good out there. He didn't look as lost as summer league. And he's the youngest player in the NBA. Couple years in the g league and who knows

he's also simply a bad shooter and probably unconfident in making that shot -- at least above one of his teammates
