There’s an old adage that insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. If that’s true, then former Kansas standout Thomas Robinson is undoubtedly insane. Time and again he’s told the world he’s better than Anthony Davis in every way, and he’s at it once again.
In an interview with BallerStatus.com, Thomas Robinson had the following big predictions about his first year in the NBA.
BallerStatus.com: Do you feel you have any threat for this Rookie of the Year Campaign?
Thomas Robinson: Nah, I think it’s going to be me.
BS.com: Point blank?
TR: Point blank. (Laughs)
Thomas Robinson doesn’t think Anthony Davis will challenge him for Rookie of the Year. Robinson’s already told the world that Davis wasn’t superman, before watching the Kentucky star fly overhead on the way to a national championship. Davis continues to surpass Robinson’s achievements, but the Jayhawk just won’t give up.
Robinson’s size, physical maturity, and skill-set should translate into the NBA nicely. In many other draft classes, he might earn rookie honors. But Anthony Davis has proved too often and too consistently that his influence over a basketball game is too complete for Robinson to compete. Davis may not have the age or experience of Robinson, but he has once-in-a-generation talent that will propel him to the top of the rookie class.
Robinson’s had a difficult couple years and seems like a solid young man, but that doesn’t mean he’s the least bit sane. Anthony Davis will be Rookie of the Year.
