I don’t think he’ll be real rusty once the games start and he gets that drive going.”
Robinson had no use being a student-athlete any longer after high school. And judging by his curt answers at Friday’s event, he won’t be the life of the locker room or a media darling.
“He’s a very shy, quiet person,’’ Stockton said. “[A press conference] is a lot different for him. You take a year off, college players had interviews throughout the whole season.”
