Thomas Robinson thinks it’s more than a one-player draft in 2012.
Robinson tweeted Thursday that he doesn’t put much credence in what NBA draft experts think, a reference to those who believe Kentucky’s Anthony Davis is head and shoulders above everyone in the draft class.
“I could care less where im at on any of your draft boards these the Same so called experts WHO didnt even know i existed a yr ago smh Lol,” Robinson tweeted Thursday.
The 6-foot-10 forward from Kansas will be the fifth overall selection, according to both NBADraft.net and ESPN’s Chad Ford, who constructed his latest predictions after the draft lottery was completed on Wednesday night.
In Robinson’s defense, he had an incredible breakout junior season for the Jayhawks, averaging 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds. He helped lead Kansas to the national championship, where he lost to Davis and the Kentucky Wildcats. He collected 18 points and 17 rebounds in that contest.
We like that Robinson will go into the NBA with a chip on his shoulder no matter where he is drafted. As Ford points out in his mock draft, Robinson is a winner – and that’s something he has in common with Davis.
