Thomas Robinson; A Leader With Heart March 31 2014

 It was an honor to see NBA Portland Trailblazer Thomas Robinson reppin’ LTF’s “Let It Be Known” snapback this week!! This guy is a real leader on and off the court. On the court he is a beast!! I was fortunate enough to be at the Blazers game when Robinson blocked Timberwolves Corey Brewer’s breakaway dunk attempt with the most insane block that I have ever witnessed! He is a rebounding machine, a fierce defender and the energy that he brings every time he walks on the court is unmatched. But it’s not only his skills on the court that make Robinson a leader. Robinson has faced some serious challenges in his life, but has persevered and shown dedication, commitment and true heart.

He is a dedicated big brother to his 10 year old sister Jayla, and this leader puts his tattoo “F.O.E.” (family over everything) to practice. It’s great to be an amazing athlete, but it’s even better to be an amazing human being.
