    WOW! Lol, he basically carried the team against Bulter. He shot a three-pointer when they needed one, plus he was fouled. Yeah, he missed the last foul shoot but Robinson fouled the Bulter player. If he wouldn’t have fouled him, I guarantee it would’ve went into overtime. If he would have made both, bulter would have just taken a foul, and went for a 3(which they are known for!!!) Come on!!!

      Would’ve, should’ve, could’ve doesn’t get the job done, does it?

    Lol….Doesn’t really matter because he’s still get drafted and YOU’RE NOT. I can’t stand haters. One person cannot carry an entire team. Ashton Gibbs wasn’t shooting 3pters when the team needed him to. And you want to bring that up his missed foul shot and imply that he’s unworthy?? It’s not like he’s the number one draft pick. It’s the Nets for pete’s sake!!! If you don’t think he’s worthy of getting drafted then why even read the article? Why care?
