Justin Robinson to work out for the Celtics

I hadn't really heard much buzz chatter about Robinson and the NBA draft...but according to this guy, he's one of the top PGs in the draft. Looks like Med is playing in the same invite only tournament (64 seniors are selected)

So I've never heard of PIT, is it a big deal?

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

PIT is a pretty important event for prospects like 5 and Med, they need to have a strong showings to start improving their draft stock. To seniors that are already projected to be lottery picks, it isn't worth their time.

Last year Bibbs and Hill both played in this tournament. The tournament invites 64 seniors that have pro aspirations to perform. Every NBA team sends scouts.

i know that they have scouts on hands for all the teams but man could they get a better venue and put some more money into the uniforms, etc. it looks like a YMCA pick up game.

for what its worth the little bit ive seen too it doesn't look to structured from a coaching stand point. looks like just a group of guys playing pick up basketball. its pretty free flowing just go out there and hoop basketball.

I know we may only get 1 drafted, but I reaaaallly want to see all 3 drafted.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

at this point, the only basketball bragging I could do at work is if we have more hokies drafted than LOLUVa. I don't see it happening, unfortunately.

Well Ty Jerome declared today, so it won't.

On a related note, Justin Bibbs made it onto the LA Clippers roster, picked up from the G-League on a 10 day contract in March, and I think they signed him to a second one right away. He's on their roster page so I guess he's on their practice squad for the playoffs.

Here are a couple highlight clips from his G-League days, and an interview with him once he made it to the Clips

Justin Bibbs

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Awesome vid man I had no idea. I want that jersey

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Dude, me too. I'd love a Bibbs Red Claws jersey much more than a Clippers one.

The awesome thing nowadays is that if he doesn't get a fair shot at the NBA he has an opportunity to still make a lot of money playing basketball in Europe if he chooses.

Justin Robinson hit a buzzer beater three pointer to lead his team to victory in their first game of the PIT. He had 6 points and 10 assists.

Clutch! BOOM!

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

Scrolling through espn I saw "stock watch after the Portsmouth Invitational", but it was an espn insider piece so couldn't read it.....they had JRob as the picture for the article. Wondering if anyone has heard any updates on how our guys did the last couple of days. Hoping JRob being in the picture means his stock is on the rise

Robinson's team lost in the Championship game 90-81. Robinson had 8 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in this game. Robinson also had 9 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists in their second game.

Ahmed Hill's Cherry Bekaert team finished 1-2 with both losses by 2 or less points.
Hill had 19 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists in their first game. 13 points, 1 rebound, 5 assists in second game. 9 points, 2 rebounds and 5 assists in third game.

From Sports Illustrated NBA Draft Sleepers Who Stood Out at Portsmouth Invitational

Justin Robinson, PG, Virginia Tech
After missing a chunk of Virginia Tech's season with an ankle injury and returning for a three-game NCAA tournament run, Robinson looked healthy and in shape at Portsmouth and was the top point guard in attendance in the eyes of most observers. He hit a game-winning three on the tournament's first night and displayed his usual levels of poise and toughness. Robinson is just 6'1" in shoes and doesn't stand out physically, but he looked bouncy, quick off the dribble and showcased a keen ability to let plays develop and delivered accurate passes with both hands. Scouts are still a bit skeptical of his jumper, which is a bit hard and flat, but he improved his three-point mark each year in college and finished at a career 38.5% from deep, a capable mark. Robinson won't turn 22 until October, making him the same age as many juniors, and played his way closer to draftability with a good week

After missing a chunk of Virginia Tech's season with an ankle injury

Well, now we know what the injury was.

Is it basketball season yet?

Justin Robinson was one of the top 40 players selected to participate in the G League Elite Camp prior to the draft. Another chance for him to make some inroads with teams.
