Boston Celtics: Slam Dunk Contest
Q. What does it take to win the dunk contest as you did three times?
Is dunking hard or easy to do?
Robinson: Hard. Some guys can palm a ball, but I can't. Because I can't palm a ball it's harder for me to dunk than most guys. Also most guys are taller and I'm shorter.
Q. What dunk you are most proud of?
Robinson: For me, the off the glass reverse 180 I did in Vegas, I think. I know I wore a white jersey, so I think it was in Vegas. I tried it a couple times before the dunk contest and I could do it. I knew I couldn’t jump the regular 360 way, so I did everything backwards instead. So everything for me was like a mirror.
Q. What advice would you give Blake Griffin?
Robinson: Have fun, that's it. He's a showman already. He already has the flair and the creativity. He's a people person, I can already tell just the way he presents himself. He's going to have a lot of fun. So just have fun, that's all and make all your dunks.
