Right-handed… Basketball is in this NBA prospect's blood, possessing similar size and skills to his father, Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson… The younger Robinson is a better athlete than his huskier father, possessing a 36-38 inch vertical leap, very good overall quickness and a chiseled frame… But where they are eerily similar is their aggressive offensive approach. Robinson can score the ball from all over the floor, but is best from the perimeter. He has deep range, extending feet beyond the 3-point line or the skills to excel in the midrange. Robinson is a good, but not great ball handler to pick his spots, curl off screens or step-back to create separation and get a shot off… He has the ability to explode off the bounce off one-leg or two, finishing above the competition in traffic or soaring for a highlight dunk… Robinson sees the floor well for a wing, moving off the ball and working to get open…

Robinson is comfortable handling the ball with either hand, but almost always prefers to use his right and finish with dominant hand. Otherwise, he is often looking down, checking to see where the ball is, rather than controlling the ball with his skills… Robinson is best used as a scorer, showing some, but not great instincts as a distributor or offensive initiator to get teammates involved… Robinson needs to improve his ability to shot-fake and put the ball on the floor and pull-up with a floater or mid-range jumper or dish the ball off to a teammate. With his propensity to knock down shots, Robinson would be that much more dangerous… Robinson needs to continue to add on to his frame, developing the strength to deal with contact in the lane or post-up offensively.
