Thomas Robinson busted for speeding – 107 MPH in 55 zone

Thomas Robinson BlazersPortland 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.

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

Anthony Davis: No beef with Thomas Robinson

Anthony Davis and Thomas Robinson are expected to be the top two picks in the upcoming NBA draft. Though Davis is the consensus No. 1 pick and expected to be a franchise-changing player, Robinson believes he should be the top pick. The former Kansas forward even took a shot at Davis earlier this month after Davis was seen wearing a T-shirt that said “Check my stats.”

“If you wanted to check the stats, then I’d be the No. 1 pick easily — if that’s what you want to do,” Robinson said, according to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. “I should get one of those shirts. I’ll get a shirt that says, ‘Numbers don’t lie.'”

Based on that back-and-forth, it looked like there was a beef brewing between the players. Not so, says Davis.

“There is no feud,” he told The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, laughing at the question.

“He’s the coolest guy and most positive guy I’ve ever met,” Davis continued. “I don’t know if he has a feud with me, but I have no feud with him.”

When asked specifically about the T-shirt quote, Davis brushed it aside.
