Tonight, it was redemption time. “It got to a point where I had to calm myself down before the game and remind myself that it’s just a game,” Thomas told CSNNW.com. “I just needed to relax and tell myself that it’s just business. It’s not personal. But at the end of the day, if I get the chance to go up against them, I’m not going to hesitate to give it to them.” In a 109-105 Portland Trail Blazers win over the Kings Sunday night at the Moda Center, Robinson played superb to the tune of 14 points on six-of-eight shooting with eight rebounds collected in 24 minutes of action.

Now isn't the time to be opposing teams facing the Portland Trail Blazers because Robinson, in his owns words, is “pissed off.” “I'm just pissed off,” he told CSNNW.com. We understand why. He was highly touted coming out of the university of Kansas and for whatever reason, he's on his third team in two years after brief stops in Sacramento and Houston. No matter the circumstances, it's safe to say that he hasn't has a fair shake in this league, and he echoes that sentiment. “I feel disrespected,” Robinson went on to say. “A lot of people don't know the ins and outs of this business. That's how it works, man. There's no point in even talking about it. That's the way things work. I'm just ready to play.” CSNNW.com

“I think his head is right, not that his head was ever bad. Sometimes when things don’t go well, you get (put) in different spots, you get a little down,” Bill Self said. “I think his batteries are charged. He’s excited to be in Portland. He had a great summer league. He was probably the best rebounder in the summer league. That’s what I’ve been told. He’s excited to get started. He has new representation. It seems to me he has a new lease on everything.” Lawrence Journal-World

The team also made a move to bring in Thomas Robinson, after which Neil Olshey said his development was one of the team's primary goals. Allen: "We're very excited to have a player of his potential. He's a very good rebounder, he's extremely tough. Obviously he's got some rough edges to improve on his game, but the reason we're so excited is he's got upside and he's really hard-nosed and he rallies the other guys around him. So we're excited to have him as a part of our team." TrailBlazers.com
