Mitchell Robinson III Having Another Productive Season
Mitchell Robinson III was drafted by the New York Knicks in the second round of the 2018 NBA Draft. He became the first Pensacola, FL native to be drafted into the NBA since Tom Sewell in 1984. Being a 7-foot center, he’s known for his tenacious rebounding and defensive ability.
Robinson III averaged 7.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks per game his rookie season and improved to 9.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game his second season. He was off to another productive year in 2020-21, but missed most of the season due to a fractured hand.
He returned this season and looks just as good, putting up 8.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game as a regular starter for the Knicks. He has a lot of promise in this league and if he can continue to improve, then the sky’s the limit for this almost 24-year-old basketball player.
