He was injured most of last season. His toe big toe has a defect in it from birth and it acted up last season. Hopefully with rest, it will be alright next year.

I really hope E-Rob shows me something this year, cause I didn't see anything from him last year, even when he was feeling healthy. I don't like the fact that I hardly ever saw him dunk on anything other than a fast break. He keeps pulling up for that 10 foot jumper. And I know that there are some good shooters with unorthodox form, but you'll have a hard time convincing me that he'll ever be consistent, with the way he cocks it back behind his head on every shot. He didn't seem like a particularly good defender, and didn't rebound as well as you'd expect for a guy his size with his athleticism.

He's not all bad. I like the way he runs the floor, and he can create his own shot. But I don't know if I see the star potential that earned him that contract. I see him in the perpetual 6th man instant offense role, along with Fizer, for the forseeable future.

i think with Rose playing youll see a different Robinson. With Mercer, Artest and the rest it was dribble and shoot. No passing. Even with a jay williams here, i think that will help his game also.

I'm not 100% sure that ERob isn't just cap filler, just like Mercer and Miller were.

Krause had a lot of cap room, so he grabbed the best free agent he could get. If Krause gets the chance to trade the #2 pick for a Ray Allen (for example), ERob will be thrown in as cap filler just like Mercer was. It would have been nice to see ERob have a healthy, productive year last season so he'd have some trade value on his own, but it didn't happen.

However, that doesn't mean that he won't have a Miller-like turnaround and play much better in his 2nd season as a Bull, giving him some trade value by the trading deadline next season. That is, if he isn't packaged with JWill and Fizer for an All-Star caliber SG this summer.

And if all else fails, ERob will probably make a nice bench player for the Bulls, bringing energy and athleticism behind Hassell at SG and Rose at SF.
