Portland Trailblazers forward and former Kansas star Thomas Robinson was busted by Portland police for speeding on Friday morning on the 5 freeway. The stats from his citation were actually more impressive than any numbers he put up in his rookie season.
According to The Oregonian, Robinson was clocked by Portland police doing 107 MPH in his Porsche Panamera in a 55-MPH zone. The fine for being caught speeding at over 100 MPH is $1,150.
Not that we’re trying to glorify his actions or anything, but it’s amazing how casual Robinson’s tone was in an apology sent over Twitter.
Apologies for that speeding ticket rip city gotta be more careful with watching the speed limit my first and last one tho for sure

Did the guy just miss a free throw or was he busted driving at reckless speeds? I can’t seem to figure it out.
