I know sometimes great players in college don't pan out in the pros, but there's no reason for T-Rob to be getting so few minutes. This guy should be a superstar in the NBA by all rights. Look what Coach Self did for him. You can't tell me he's not good enough to run w/the NBA's elite.
I've seen so many people post on this, jhawks1510. I responded to someone about this the other day so I'm just going to copy and paste that response. Again, not trying to hate on TRob. We can all agree he's been one of our favorites at KU... and I've been watching KU basketball for a long time. But... when it comes to TRob this season...
(my post from the other day)
"He DID get to play with the Kings. His minutes were reduced as the season progressed because of his play. Last night was more of the same. His defense is poor and he fouls too often (because his defense is poor). He's just not there YET.
Now don't get me wrong, I have faith in TRob but it's going to take time. He's just not quite ready for the NBA yet. McHale will get him there much as he did Marcus, who spent most of last season in the D League. TRob is a long-term project with huge upside but he's far from there now.
But don't think he didn't get a chance with the Kings. He did. He just lost his minutes to the other PF's due to his fouls, TO's, defense, and poor shooting percentage. Again, he'll get there but don't blame the Kings for all his woes."
