Jerome Robinson voted likely 2nd best career of rookie class


The Los Angeles Clippers Jerome Robinson was voted by fellow rookies as the second most likely to have the best career of the class.

The Los Angeles Clippers rookie shooting guard got some solid acknowledgement from his fellow rookie class. In the recently released 2018-19 Rookie Survey, Jerome Robinson‘s peers voted him as the second most likely player to have a successful career.

Robinson was tied for 10% of the votes with New York Knicks’ rookie Kevin Knox. Both fell behind leading vote getter Wendell Carter Jr., who finished with 13% of the votes.

This is a good sign for Robinson, who many were initially confused by the Clippers taking at the 13th spot in the NBA Draft. Fans have since warmed up to the idea of Robinson after news came out that many teams were looking to make a move in order to draft him.

Jerry West has loved the rookie from day one, so maybe it’s no surprise that other rookies now see him as having a great career. Robinson is a shot maker, which is invaluable in today’s league. His ability to create his own shot as well as be a knock down shooter should allow him to always find a spot on any roster.

Robinson showed flashes in the Summer League, averaging 13.7 points on 44% shooting in his three games. He does need some work on the defensive end, but with the league being so offense heavy, that’s not nearly the detriment that it used to be.

Robinson, together with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, looks to be part of a solid backcourt of the future for the Los Angeles Clippers. It’s nice to see the rest of the league thinks so too.
