    Kid show some flashes of a young Amar'e especially with his athleticism and strong finishes. Hopefully an Amar'e 2.0 who actually rebounds, hustles and defends. We'll see.

    OMG! http://www.clutchfans.net/bbs/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif I was thinking the SAME thing. I am sure it is difficult to do interviews, regardless of who the interviewee is, but goodness! He kept asking questions that T-Rob had already answered, or he himself already asked. Nevertheless, Excited to see him mix in with this team. I think the trade was a steal.

    I'm a forty one year old professional. I wear a hat backwards, often. For me it's comfort, although, I pretty much just like hats in general. Does this make me a thug? No.

    I have zero issue with you not agreeing with someone wearing their hat backwards. But, to say you "don't have respect for that person" because of it, a little ridiculous IMO.

    You also said, "you judge someone by what they wear" it's not your place to judge anyone really, is it? Especially by what someone wears. You may be really missing out on an amazing person if you judge them without really knowing them. Again, just my opinion.

    Sorry for the derail. I'm stoked that we got TRob!! Oh, TRob, love the hat!!

    He is without sin, so he cast the first stone. You are a sinner(clearly you have to be walking around with that on your head), so don't throw any stones back at this perfect man. Improper fashion is a sin. #LADYGAGAMEATDRESS #ONESIES #MIKETYSONFACETAT #JAMESBOND #POLOMULLETOFSHIRTS

    This guy is offensive monster. He is averaging almst 5 boards in 15 minutes as a rookie.He is a fantastic rebounder who can block shots. I think the Rockets see him as a guy who can alternate from the 5 to the four spot and vice versa. With him and Asik the offensive glass will be ours for the taking on most night.

    He seems super athletic and good at rebounding. But seems like he has a crap jumper and no post moves. I just hope he's not another stromile swift or jordan hill.

    I didn't see a single jumpshot so yeah it must be a lesser jumpshot. Don't really like it when a player has highlights and they are all dunks. He must not have confidence in his shot though the draft express video said that he was decent from mid range.

    His jumper will take time. He does shoot from mid range,needs a lot of work with it.

    JSmoove is actually shorter by actual height without shoes and wingspan than T-Rob but Josh ahs got the crazier hops.

    Josh Smith vs Thomas Robinson vital statistics:
    Height w/o shoes: 6'7" vs 6'7.75"
    Wingspan: 7'0" vs 7'3.25" (though I doubt this as he had also been measured as 7'1")
    Max Vertical: 39.5" vs 35.5"


    T-Rob's timing is so far from Josh Smith's. T-Rob didn't average a block per game in college.

    I don't know if you can still teach timing to a big man and the Rockets development team has not been seen to do so.
