Sacramento Kings rookie Thomas Robinson and the Wall Street Journal aren’t exactly a pairing you’d really put together initially, but the former Kansas Jayhawk knows basketball wont last forever and plans to become a young entrepreneur in due time – so the combination makes a bit more sense.
Robinson sat down with the WSJ’s Lee Hawkins to talk basketball, life in general and his future business plans.
It’s rare to see a player so young yet so focused – not only his his basketball career, but life in general. Robinson has had to grow up quickly though, especially in the last few years, and it shows in the mentality and maturity of the Kings rookie.
The Kings have quickly added some wonderful young talent through the draft the past few seasons, but more than that, they’ve added great people, like Robinson and Isaiah Thomas who continue to impress as much off-court as they do on.
Although it’s a trying time to be a Kings fan in terms of ownership and the arena situation, the on-floor product is becoming quite impressive and while they may not challenge for a playoff spot in the deep Western Conference this year, it’s only a matter of time before they do. And you can bet Thomas Robinson, young entrepreneur and all, will be a major reason for that.
