NBA Comparison: N/A

Robin is an offensive minded player that possesses a good combination of size and length (long arms) … He shows solid mobility and runs the floor well … Understands the game well and has a solid basketball IQ … He is pure face-up player at this point that doesn’t use his size to post up … Ok passer with good vision and hands … Handles the ball well with both hands (very impressive to see a 6’10’’ player that handles the ball that well) … Robin has the ability to make quick decisions when he receives the ball … Quick first step while driving to the rim … Offensively Robin has a very good and effective shot … His jump shot has a quick, and consistent release but not high release point (very difficult to block shot due to his long arms and size at the SF position) … He can hit 3’s, mid-range jumpers and create his own shots off the dribble … Attempts more 3pt shots than 2pt (45 – 108; 41.7% for 2 and 45 – 127; 35.4% for 3).

Below average rebounder with only 2.2 reb/per game … Defensively he is not tough enough to compete at the next level and has trouble staying in front of his man … His lack of strength limits his effectiveness on the court … Has to develop his mid-range game and be more effective … Struggles driving to his left and finishing, lacking some ability to score around the basket in traffic.

Steven Petrovic 4/24/10

Strengths: Very good shooter of the dribble or standing still. Good penetrator … Assasin’s go-to guys mentality … Very proficient scorer. Very good handles and moves for a big guy … Excellent body control, deadly spin move … Good and quick hands … Fierce competitor. Shoots over smaller SF’s while taking bigger PF’s off the dribble … Very smart and savvy player …

Very slim build and only average frame … Doesn’t appear very strong, has problems holding his position in the post against almost anybody … Only average athlete with limited quickness, reactiveness and average motor … Plays mainly below the rim, more of a finesse than power player … Defensive lateral footspeed is poor which hurts him in 1-1 and pick and roll situations … Very poor rebounder for his size and position, gives low effort on it … Considering his size, a below average shotblocker … Not very intense on the defensive end.

Simon Dresden 4/24/10

Right now Robin is too skinny but reminds some of Dirk Nowitzki at the same age, but a better defensive player. He lacks Dirk’s frame however, with thin shoulders. He takes pride in good defense and taking charges. Besides that, he has quite good ball handling and can shoot threes pretty well. Competes hard, strong motor. The top talent in the 89 class in Germany by far. Has a long ways to go, but decent talent and size.

Notes: Has a twin brother named Marian who is 6-5.
