How old is Mitchell Robinson?
Mitchell Robinson is 23 years old. He was born on April 1, 1998.
Last season, New York Knicks rookie big Mitchell Robinson was one of the team’s few bright lights.
In 2017, Robinson was named to the preliminary roster of the United States national under-19 team, however, he did not make the 12-man squad for the 2017 FIBA Under-19 Basketball World Cup.
Robinson stood 7 ft 0 in (2.13 m) without shoes and 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m) with shoes at the tryout, weighing 223 pounds (101 kg) and having a wingspan of 7 ft 4 in (2.24 m) and a standing reach of 9 ft 3 in (2.82 m).
Robinson has been dubbed “the best shot blocker in his class” by some observers, thanks to his exceptional closing speed and extended reach, which has resulted in countless highlight reel blocks.
He also uses his quickness to run the fast break unusually well for a big man of his size, earning the title of “most entertaining player” in the New Orleans area thanks to his ability to convert alley-oop dunks.
Over the course of his two years at Chalmette, Robinson improved his free throw shooting and acquired range from behind the three-point line, making as many as five in a game.
His game has been compared to that of DeAndre Jordan and Tyson Chandler in NBA draft projections.
