The shot pickup is where a lot of players issues start when shooting off of the dribble by not cleanly picking the ball up. If he is dribbling with his left hand he quickly brings the ball to his right hand to go up into his shot. If he is dribbling with his right hand he brings his left hand to the ball and up into his shot.
Off the Dribble
Robinson is very effective off of the dribble in isolation and coming off of ball screens. He uses a variety of change of direction moves, fakes and hesitations to create space for his shot. Two of his favorite moves off of the dribble are the drag dribble and the step back. He is able to pull up off of the dribble from three and in the mid range. His clean and quick pick ups allow him to get his shot off in a variety of ways and against longer defenders.
Robinson not only can shoot it from a variety of places and ways, but he is great at finishing in the paint as well. As a 6’6 combo guard, Robinson uses his length and athleticism to finish over and around opponents. He often finishes at the rim off of two feet. This allows him to create and take on contact and still be strong and balanced enough to finish. Finishing off of two feet also allows Robinson to avoid help side defense from blocking his shot or taking a charge on him.
