Against bums, he is averaging 14 points, 11 boards, and 6 blocks. Scouts aren't going to care how many boards and swats he gets against teams who start 6'5 power forwards.
Against MSU, a team with legit size, he had 8 points, 7 boards, and 2 blocks. Yawn
It seems your argument is impossible to win. You are declaring last year invalid because KU also had Robinson (which makes no sense because everyone else is talking about defense, which Robinson did not affect at all. If you are talking rebounds it makes even less sense because he had to fight with Robinson for all of them). And you will discount any stat from this year that isnít against Michigan State Ė and stats are wonderful tools when the sample size is limited as much as possible
So, cool story bro.
