Short interview an article with Robinson. Who thinks he should be the number one pick in the draft.
To be fair, every player wants to be #1 in the draft. Doesn't mean it's going to happen.

I love how the article starts out with revisionist history, saying that there was debate over Wall/Turner and over Irving/Williams at #1. Huh? Those guys were basically no less locks at #1 than Davis.

Yeah, I completely agree. Of course its to his credit that he has the confidence to believe he's the best. I'd rather invest in a player like that, than in a player like Drummond, who doesn't play with aggression or confidence.

There actually was some debate with Irving/Williams, but you are definitely right about Wall/Turner.

Didn't that have more to do with the teams involved? Generally, a team has at least one good player, Cleveland had nothing so they were trying to decide whether to start with a PG or the most athletic player.
