Robinson Would Welcome Return To Washington
Thomas Robinson would be interested in returning to the Washington, D.C. area if he's drafted by the Wizards.
“That’s where I started my dream at, in D.C.,” Robinson said, “and to be able to come back home would mean a lot to me, because that’s something that you fantasize in your mind about when you’re little, bringing the city back to where it belongs. That’s something that I definitely wouldn’t mind doing.”
Robinson lost his mother, grandmother and grandfather within a one-month span in December 2010 and January 2011.
Robinson averaged 17.7 points and 11.9 rebounds per game last season.
“He’s a great player and everyone certainly knows who Thomas Robinson is, his back story. Everyone is proud of what he’s accomplished,” Ted Leonsis said. “And of all the players, he’s the most physically developed. So no one will go wrong picking Thomas Robinson.”
