They say that every NBA rookie will have that moment when they realize professional basketball is a business. But for Thomas Robinson, those moments were never-ending. His first season in the NBA felt more like five long years boiled down into one season of turbulence. Robinson, the former Kansas star, was traded twice, struggled to live up to his billing as a top-five pick, and is now preparing for his third city in 12 months.
“I feel like I’ve been in the league about five years already, and I’ve only been one,” Robinson said Sunday, during a return trip to Allen Fieldhouse. “But it’s a good thing. It matured me as a player. It matured me as a person. It humbled me a lot.”
