Who is Justin Robinson?

Findaballer would like to introduce Justin Robinson or “J Rob”. Also known as the giant slayer who’s an explosive point guard out of Monmouth University, and our next Hometown Athlete. Mr. Robinson is a fearless high energy player with laser focus on the court.

The Climb To The Top

Justin was a 4 year starter at Kingston High School. J Rob led the Tigers to the 2013 Section 9 Class AA and Division Championships behind a 19-3 record. His height is his power. His dominating mind-frame and relentless training methods allowed him to tally 17 points, 8 assist, 4 steals, and 3 rebounds a game his senior year. He also gained countless accolades along the way. Being named section Tournament MVP,  section Player of the Year and County Player of the Year, Daily Freeman Player of the Year are just a few in a long list of many. After not being heavily recruited because of his small stature, Justin Robinson leveled up and committed to play at Monmouth University in New Jersey where his dominance continued.

J Rob’s determination to prove people wrong made for some of the best basketball the school has ever seen. In his 4 years at Monmouth he shot over 40% from the field, helping his team to knock off big names like number 17 ranked Notre Dame, UCLA, USC, Georgetown, and the list went on and on. In his final two seasons Justin tallied 19 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds a game. He was named 1st team all league 3 years in a row, back to back  MAAC Player Of The Year awards, winner of the Lou Henson Award for top Mid Major player in the country, and racked up 2000 total career points putting him in an elite class of players in the history of D1 College Basketball. He also accumulated  quite a few more awards during his college years, but we don’t have room to acknowledge them all. 

His climb didn’t stop at Monmouth. Upon graduating in 2017, Justin worked his way onto the Miami Heat summer league team where he averaged 9 points, 2 assists, and 2 rebounds a game in 10 games played. He eventually signed with Russian club Avtodor Saratov averaging 12 points, and 7 assists a game. J Rob then signed on to play for French club Elan Chalon where he averaged 15 points and a league leading 8 assists per game. He’s currently playing with Italian team Victoria Libertas and making an immediate impact as usual averaging 13 points and 4 assist a game. So maybe he’s more than a giant slayer, we see Justin Robinson as a full fledged Giant. 

Humility

Justin has always kept a level head throughout his entire career and this mentality has carried over to his love for training and helping the youth. J Rob has participated in multiple clinics and camps outside of his basketball seasons and we at Findaballer love to see the players giving back. As a hometown athlete J Rob has proven he’s more than just an amazing basketball player, he’s also an amazing human being and ambassador of the sport.

The Future Is Bright

Justin’s career has been going well and we only see great things coming his way. His work ethic and determination has gotten him further than many people gave him credit for, and we can’t wait to see where he ends up next. Don’t be surprised if he gets another shot at the league, he certainly has the mindframe. Justin is the prime example of the popular saying from Mark Twain,  “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog”. Keep fighting, it’s your neighborhood now Mr. Robinson.
