|USA Basketball U19 World Championship Training Camp Report, Part Two|
June 19, 2013
The Pittsburgh point guard didn't do anything spectacular in his initial few days in Colorado Springs, which is perhaps exactly why he was invited to continue on with the team after the first batch of cuts were made. Robinson is a steady and consistent pass-first point guard who runs the team effectively, doesn't make mistakes, and understands his role. His physical limitations hurt his potential as a high-level half-court creator and perimeter defender, and he must continue to improve the consistency of his outside shot. Robinson's basketball IQ and unselfish mentality will continue to make him a popular figure amongst coaches for a long time, but this USA team needed more athleticism, defense and perimeter shooting than he was able to provide.

Nike Hoop Summit Scouting Reports: Guards
April 11, 2012
|John McDonnell / The Washington Post|
A quintessential Pitt Point Guard, James Robinson (#45 ESPN, #79 Scout, #58 Rivals) showed quite a bit of intrigue throughout the week in practice and played the role of deferential facilitator during the Hoop Summit game. A late addition to the US roster after Marcus Paige suffered a stress fracture in his left foot, Robinson was perhaps the least highly touted player on the US Junior Select Team, but impressed over the course of the practices with his leadership on the floor and overall skill level.
Standing 6'2 with a ready-made frame for the college game, Robinson does not have elite quickness or explosiveness, but is a decent athlete across the board. He compensates for his lack of elite quickness by playing the game at different speeds and using his strength and toughness to his advantage when driving the lane.
A capable ball-handler with good fundamentals, Robinson has the makings of a solid distributor at the next level. He is by no means a flashy passer who will break down defenders in one-on-one situations, but he plays disciplined basketball, organizes his teammates, does what his coaches ask of him, and looks to find the open man. We didn't get to see much of that in the actual Hoop Summit game due to the highly disorganized nature of his team's offense, but that was extremely evident in the practice sessions leading up to the game.
As a scorer, Robinson shows the ability to knock down shots from beyond the arc in catch and shoot situations, and displays a knack for using his strength around the rim. He's not a creative finisher, and his lack of great speed limits his ability to get out in transition prolifically or beat opponents off the dribble regularly in the half-court, but his shooting ability is a major plus, as his consistent, reliable mechanics will keep defenders honest at the next level.
Defensively, Robinson plays with good intensity and doesn't give up anything easy. His quickness is not great, and he doesn't have a long wingspan (measured 6-2 ˝), but he's a tough and team-oriented player on this end of the floor –two things that should endear him to Jamie Dixon early in his Pittsburgh career.
Though Robinson lacks the physical tools of an elite prospect, his efficient style of play is rather rare for a point guard his age. If he can develop his scoring ability a bit, his low-mistake style of basketball could make him a valuable commodity for the Panthers as they transition to the ACC, and possibly help him emerge as a legit NBA prospect down the road.
