NBA Comparson: Trevor Ariza

Strengths: Tremendously athletic small forward who plays with a lot of energy … A great above-the-rim offensive player, Robinson is on the receiving end of many a lob pass … Ambidextrous. Can drive either direction with either hand …  Finishes strong at the basket, as well … Good NBA body, standing 6’6" with a solid frame and a 6’9" wingspan … Good at probing the defense for holes and finding a driving lane to the basket … Runs the floor well and can be a terror in transition … Good lateral quickness and long arms makes him a solid perimeter defender … Attacks the offensive glass and scores on a number of putbacks and second-chance tip-ins … Has great defensive instincts which, along with his long arms, allow him to jump the passing lane and take the ball the other way for an easy finish … Solid shooter from midrange. Shot 49% overall, which is a testament to his efficiency and patience on offense … Doesn’t force things on offense, but when he chooses to attack, he does it with aggression and commitment … Good free throw shooter.  Shot 76% this season. Appears to be a better shooter than his numbers showed based on his form and shooting in practices … Played for a pair of Michigan teams that made deep runs in the tournament …

Weaknesses: Can sometimes be too passive on offense … Often seemed content to play a secondary role to Nik Stauskas and Mitch McGary (and even Caris LaVert) while at Michigan … Decent, but not great outside shooter … Needs to gain consistency to shoot from behind the arc at an NBA level … Doesn’t always get his feet set when shooting from distance … Shot 31% from 3 this season. An unexpectedly low number considering his shooting ability … Robinson is still maturing as a player.  He’s only 20 years old and often has the mental lapses or losses of concentration that come with that … For being such a tenacious offensive rebounder, Robinson doesn’t exert the same effort on the defensive glass.  Averaged only 3 defensive boards per game this season … Often needs others to set him up to score … Should look to tighten loose handle.  Needs to protect the ball better when it’s in his hands … Can often get overmatched and bullied by bigger forwards, both on the perimeter and inside, but doesn’t have the quickness to play the 2 … Has a poor rate of drawing fouls.  Averaged little more than 3 free throw attempts per game this season … Sometimes he just needs to focus more on making the fundamentally sound play than the game-changing/highlight play … Didn’t quite make the level of improvements he was expected to make after his freshman year, though he certainly did show development …

Notes: Son of former Bucks All-Star Glenn Robinson … Measured 6’6.5 (in shoes) 211 lbs, with a 6’9 wingspan at the 2013 Kevin Durant Skills Academy…

Robinson has the physical tools and the general attitude to succeed in the NBA and he’s still continuing to fine-tune his basketball skills … Robinson has a great deal of potential and has shown in his college career that he’s perfectly fine being a role player, but he needs to improve as a shooter and a defender …

Strengths: Not to be confused with NFL’s RG3, "GR3" is an above the rim athlete with star potential … Smooth. Makes everything look easy. Wing player who attacks the basket and makes highlight finishes … Quick, explosive leaping ability. Gets to the rim in a hurry … Has a good feel for the game and solid perimeter skills …Versatile wing with the ISO ability to create shots off the dribble as well as the vision to find teammates … Runs the floor well and has the fluidity and body control to make acrobatic plays at the rim in transition … Surprising all around skills for a freshman … NBA ready body. Focused. Shows strong maturity, both mentally and physically, for a first year college player … Good decision maker … Very efficient scorer. 59% from the floor … Competitive … Unselfish. Team player. Excellent form on his shot, and shows range to knock down the college three ball consistently. Father was known for being a deadly pull up shooter, and GR3 shows potential to develop the same skill … Understands spacing. Adept scorer with the ability to find cracks in the defense and moves well to get open … Solid defender. Gets low, good fundamentals and effort … Slashes to the basket well for rebounds. Understands positioning and boxing out … Physical strength and explosiveness allow him to out-rebound bigger opponents. Good anticipation. Very good second leaper allows him to grab a board and make a follow up dunk … Good length. Wingspan likely in the 6’10 range …

Weaknesses: Despite being the team’s most talented prospect, at times can be too unselfish. He is the third option on the Michigan team after Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr., and has accepted his underclassman role being more of a glue guy who looks for baskets within the flow of a game … Some may question his ability to be the star of a team because of this … At 6’6, he’s on the smaller side for the 3 position, but could conceivably develop into a SG over time … Offensive game shows nice potential but still has a lot of room for improvement. Creating and pulling up off the dribble … Shoots a hair below 70% from the FT line. Nothing too concerning but should be better considering his excellent form … Should concentrate on becoming a vocal team leader. Can also improve on his on ball defense …

Notes: Father Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson was a former #1 overall pick (1994), and shows the same type of elite level athleticism … He’s got a feel for the game that a player who grew up around the game normally possesses … Unlikely to be fazed by making the jump to the NBA having grown up around the league and should receive solid advice on the off court and business end of the game …Will likely become the unquestioned team leader and first option if he returns to Ann Arbor for his sophomore year … Has top 10 pick potential … Measured 6’6.5 (in shoes) 211 lbs, with a 6’9 wingspan at the 2013 Kevin Durant Skills Academy
