After playing overseas, Robinson set to pursue NBA dreams - Jul 8, 2012

Frank
Robinson
Since the 2008-2009 season, Cal. State Fullerton alumnus Frank Robinson has been patiently chasing his NBA dream. After a stint with the Atlanta Hawks' '08-'09 team, Robinson took his talents overseas to Slovenia and Germany before returning to Philips Arena the very next season.

The California native played pre-season ball with the Hawks but spent the remainder of the year as a starter for the D-League's Los Angeles D-Fenders.

Now, after last participating in the 2010 NBA Summer League with the D-Fenders and back-to-back seasons in Israel, Robinson is back on Las Vegas' hardwood where he joins the Golden State Warriors' summer squad and will debut against the Los Angeles Lakers on July 13th, at the COX Pavilion Arena on the campus of University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Though several NBA organization tried to recruit Robinson for summer league workouts, he is convinced the Warriors are the best fit. "Being invited to play for the Warriors was unexpected but I am grateful for the invitation and plan on taking full advantage of the platform to show my improvements from the last couple of years in Israel," said Robinson via email interview.

The 6-4 explosive guard, who clinched Defensive Player of the Year honors in two different continents plans to utilize his athletic defensive abilities and standout. "It is no secret that I am known for my defensive game. Knowing coach (Mark) Jackson is a guy who takes pride in his team's defense and smart basketball, I hope I can adjust to what he wants and earn minutes on this summer league team," Robinson added.

Robinson, who first entered the summer league scenes four seasons ago is determined that he has improved over the years and elevated his game to the NBA level. "It's been a couple years since I worked with the Hawks and this time I feel like I have matured into a player and person off the court that can help teams win," said Robinson.

He took his training back to the basics while running tracks and hills at 06:00 on a daily basis, and putting in extra gym hours to work on his game with Eugene 'Pooh' Jeter, Brandon Heath, Joe Crawford and Horace Wormely, helping each other prepare for the future. "The idea was to do the things that got me to this point, and I owe it to Joe for talking to me and keeping me motivated everyday," he said.

Robinson is coming off successful seasons in Israel with Maccabi Haifa and B.C. Habikaa recording professional career highs in steals (2.4), rebounds (5.5) and assists (2.3) per game, and believes the years abroad better prepared him for the NBA process this time around.

"Coming in as a first year guy you think it's all about scoring, but the reality is that teams want guys to come in and be able to adjust to their main players and help them with the little things like hitting open shots, guarding the opposing teams' best player and making it difficult for him to score. That, and making plays without the ball is what will keep you on a roster for guys in my position," said Robinson.

He takes pride in being a graduate of the mid-major program at Cal. State Fullerton and is entertained by the unique opportunity of being in Las Vegas along with two of his college teammates. "No one would have expect for Cal. State Fullerton to have three players (Josh Akognon, Bobby Brown and myself) from the same team playing in the summer league," he said.

"Josh (Sacramento Kings) has been one of the top players in China and this year hopes to make his debut in the NBA. Bobby (Toronto Raptors) has two NBA seasons under his belt and has a great chance of making an NBA roster. I'm happy the three of us can share this moment, and I pray that we all have successful showings," Robinson said.

In preparation for the summer league, Robinson spent the last few weeks working out in Los Angeles while playing for team 'Top Prospects' of the internationally recognized Drew League. "Coached by John and associate head coach 'Big Guard Rob', It was important for me to re-connect with all my childhood friends and play and train together," he said.

Regarding his upcoming challenge Robinson said, "The goal? Obviously to play well enough to earn a guaranteed contract or even a non-guaranteed for that matter. I would not be going (to Las Vegas) if I didn't feel that I was ready to accomplish that at this point in my career."
