With Robinson’s history with both Popovich and USA Basketball, it was suggested he could be an assistant coach with Popovich. Robinson laughed, then said: “I would jump at the chance. I haven’t done any coaching, but I would jump at the chance to do that. The Olympics is just a great experience. … But like I said, to go from Coach K to Pop, you can’t ask for a better jump than that.”
Robinson then mentioned the signing of David West, calling the move a “phenomenal acquisition. Just a super smart player, who has all the skills inside and out.” Robinson said he plans to sit down with West, too. “He’s already said to me, ‘You were one of my favorite players growing up,’” said Robinson. “So now I get a chance to spend some time with him and encourage him, not just in basketball, but in life. That’s an incredible blessing.”
As the discussion switched to sports cards, Robinson, 50, admitted he has a lot. “I used to collect them as a boy – largely baseball is my favorite sport – baseball and football cards, and some basketball cards,” he said. “So I kind of understand when I see these kids with their cards. It’s their way of dreaming.” And the first time Robinson saw himself on a card, “It was really strange,” he said. “You never grow up as a kid thinking this is going to be your future.”
