Knicks’ Mitchell Robinson pays respect to New York trainers with latest Tweet
New York Knicks big man Mitchell Robinson is not taking any time off this summer to make sure he’s ready for his comeback season. The 23-year-old center played just 31 games last season before fracturing his right foot and ultimately ending his third season in New York a bit early. From the looks of things though, it seems that Robinson is ready to roll as the 2021-2022 NBA season approaches.
On Thursday, the Knicks’ official Twitter account posted a series of photos of Robinson getting shots up in the gym as New York’s training camp resumed. Robinson was feeling himself after a tiring workout and immediately went on Twitter to tip his hat to the Knicks staff for making him look quite buff:

The road in his NBA career has been tough for the former McDonald’s All-American. After a peculiar stint at the Western Kentucky University where he didn’t play a single minute of college ball, Robinson was then picked up by the Knicks as their 36th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
From there, Mitchell Robinson went to work. The Florida native developed into one of the more exciting shot blockers in the league, averaging 2.2 swats per game in his first two seasons in the NBA. Unfortunately, a season-ending injury earlier this calendar year ultimately affected the upward trajectory of his young career.
With the Knicks surging last season through the leadership of Julius Randle and Derrick Rose, look for young guys like Mitchell Robinson to be ready to make plays and make sure New York remains in playoff contention.
