We’ve said before that in basketball sometimes guys who you wouldn’t expect to can make a huge difference.
For Duke, we think Justin Robinson is one of those guys. David Robinson’s son, he came to Duke as 6-8 walk-on. He’s 6-10 now and has a slight chance at nearly equalling his father’s 7-1 height.
He’s a reserve at Duke but has shown he can step up and contribute on the court, but a lot of what he does is, we’re convinced, unseen by most fans. He has a huge hand in Duke’s success.
Anyway, the Chronicle has a profile up of Robinson, a junior now, who wears #50 to honor his Hall of Fame father.
There will come a time in his career when Robinson is called on and needed, and we’re telling you now, that guy will step up and answer.
