Frank Robinson, new Partizan signing, talks to Eurobasket - Aug 4, 2016

Frank
Robinson
After failing to win any trophy over the past two seasons, Partizan will attempt to return to glory days despite modest -to say the least- financial means. New faces in their roster -so far- are Serbian national team player Stefan Bircevic, Djordje Majstorovic, Branislav Ratkovica and two Americans - Frank Robinson (college: CS Fullerton) and William Hatcher.

Frank Robinson is a left-handed, 193 cm tall, 32-year-old guard coming from Compton, California.

I love basketball. I love being around my teammates, playing in the loudest arenas all over the world and -most of all- I love to fight for my team. My strengths on the court are taking advantage of my athletic ability on defense and penetration for making plays, either to score or for my teammates. I am a very vocal player and love just going out there and having a great time competing to win every time. Even with the odds against my team, I want to win. I hate losing; when I lose I can't eat or sleep after games. I try to do everything in my ability to win so I can eat and sleep normal.

You played just 6 games last season - in Turkish second division. What was the reason for that?

I went to Turkey in February because I hurt my knee while playing in South Korea during training camp in August of 2015. When I got to Turkey the team was in bad shape both on the court and financially. Coming off an injury I felt that it was better not to risk anything for a team who did not care for winning as much as I did. The team no longer exist now which proves my point...

You played in many different countries, could you talk about best and worst experience in your pro career?

I have played professionally for 8 years now. I've played at every level of basketball, starting with NBA training camp with Atlanta Hawks where I met coach Aleksandar Dzikic. From there I went to play for him in Ljubljana where I played my first season of Euroleague. That was the start of a well-traveled career. I've played in EuroCup twice, EuroChallenge twice, and another year of EuroLeague. I've played in Israel for three seasons, played partial seasons in the German BBL for two seasons and through my career I have played basketball in over 50 countries. My worst experience was last season - playing for Istanbul DSI. My best experience is hard to think of. Surprisingly, the thing that comes to mind is when I played for Nilan Bisons. We were the first ever EuroCup team out of Finland and we lost the tie breaker to Eric McCollum and his Greek team Panionios to qualify to the second round. That year I was top ten in scoring in EuroCup. Our team had a lot of great guys and some really good specialists. Playing with players like John Williamson, Mikko Kovisto and Tukka Kotti made the game a lot easier.

When people google your name, they can see that Kobe Bryant was impressed by your play in Drew League game back in 2013. Could you share your Drew League experience?

In 2013 I won the championship at The Drew (the Drew League). I was also named MVP, the gym was sold out and I had a great game -shooting, passing, defense- it was just one of those days that everything was clicking. Kobe Bryant was sitting in the front row. My biggest memory of that night was getting the ball right in front of him and doing a one on one move and pulling up for three and making the game winning shot. I looked over to one of my good friends Joe Crawford (the brother of Jordan Crawford) and then I looked at Kobe as I was walking down the court. He gestured to me the soccer celebration with the airplane wings and I told him "nah, no celebration, I do this." Now that I think of it, I probably should have taken that moment in. But it's the truth I have hit some pretty big shots throughout my career.

It was played in Compton, your home city, which has violent reputation. How is it to be born and raised there?

The Drew is played in my home town and for me it's important to always perform well. Compton is a special place. It's not always what the media or TV shows of us but -at the same time- you have to be careful of your surroundings. I was born and raised there and I love my city. I moved away when I was 15, but I still visit often. My father still lives there now.

Who are your best friends among pro basketball players?

Throughout my career I have met some really great guys as teammates and now friends for life... Among them are Horace Wormely, Joe Crawford, John Williamson, Mark Lyons, Leo Lyons, Mirza Begic and Malcolm Delaney. It's not fair of me to just mention these guys because I have met some really great guys but these are the ones I speak to often.

This will be your first experience in Serbia, but you know Partizan coach Aleksandar Dzikic from your spell at Olimpija in 2008-2009 season. How would you describe him? Any anecdotes from your days in Ljubljana?

I met Mirza Begic, while playing for coach Dzikic my rookie season. He and I became super close because we were the youngest on the team. He had experience obviously and I was in my first season abroad. Coach always spoke to me about being with Mirza because he knew Mirza would help me adjust. Coach always wanted the players to be prepared, he was very strict on me but it is the reason why I have been able to play for so long. Over the years we always kept in contact and now felt like this could be a great time to do something special in Belgrade.

What do you know about Partizan and Serbia in general?

One of my first games as a rookie was against Partizan during ABA League. I remember looking in the crowd and being amazed at how passionate the fans were. I remember saying to myself that I would hate to be a player who has to play against not only the team but the fans. So now that I have an opportunity to play for them I'm excited. The club has so much history and the culture is made for winning and this is something that a player should dream to be a part of. Everyone that I know who has played in Serbia says only nice things about the country. I look forward to getting there and meeting my teammates.

Did you have any other offers? Why did you decide to sign with Partizan?

I was set to go back to play in the KBL, in South Korea, where I would make pretty good money as one of the draft picks there. But I could not pass up the opportunity to come and play for a team with so much history and the coach that has impacted my career the most.

Most of Partizan fans are not familiar with your game. What can they expect from you on the court? Any message for them?

I am aware that most fans do not know of me yet and I hope that will change. I can only say that they should expect me to give everything I have to the club to win games. It's who I am as a player and a person/teammate. I will give you my all through it all. I will fight for everything with no hesitation.
