Glenn Robinson Unhappy With New Role
Glenn Robinson III: “When you come here and your role’s not really explained or you don’t know what’s going on with the trade…I don’t really understand it.”

Let’s play a quick game. Try to read the above tweet without getting frustrated.
Lose? Me too.
Since joining the Sixers back on February 6th, Robinson is shooting a knife-twisting 0% on his 9 3-pointers. For Golden State, on the other hand, he was shooting 40% on about 3.5 attempts per game. While this is a small sample size, it is certainly not a good sign.
For a guy to be this frustrated 6 games into his second stint with the Sixers, you have to start trying to draw a conclusion about Brett Brown and Elton Brand.
When you come here and your role’s not really explained or you don’t know what’s going on with the trade…I don’t really understand it.”
Was his role not discussed before trading for him? Judging from his comments, it sure looks like it. We all know that he was brought in to bolster out bench and continue to shoot threes, but he has been thrust into the starting lineup a few times while Brett played around with Horford’s role. In February. So what is Robinson’s role? Is he expected to start? Or is he expected to come off the bench? How many shots will he be getting?
Ya know, since he was shooting 40% from three prior to the trade.
If you have not begun to question the communication between Brett and Elton, I don’t know what to tell ya, its right there in front of our eyes. Figure it out, please.
P.S. – This reminds me of another situation with a coach not being on the same page as his front office.
