Knicks’ David Fizdale Praises Mitchell Robinson’s Shot-Blocking Ability

Published

on

New York Knicks head coach David Fizdale has been impressed with the shot blocking technique of rookie center Mitchell Robinson, who is averaging an impressive 2.43 blocks per game this season.

“Some of that is just natural,” Fizdale said, according to Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic. “The timing and all of that stuff, that’s natural stuff. He walked in here with timing everything. The fact that he naturally already just instinctually says, ‘oh left hand block versus the right hand block because it’s the right hand to use.’ Those are things that you can teach some of that stuff but man, he walked in the door with a lot of that. The biggest thing with him was understanding what was going on around him and how fast the action was coming at him. And over the course of the year, it seems like that he’s adjusted to that really well.”
