08:10 AM ET 06.01 | After Marcus and Markieff Morris left Kansas, Thomas Robinson sure made the most of his star turn, and he's on the verge now of becoming a top-five pick in the draft -- possibly No. 2 or 3, the latter of which happens to be the Wizards' selection. Unlike Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant, who has repeatedly said he has no interest in playing so close to where he grew up, Robinson said after the lottery that he would actually have interest in playing in Washington. "That's where I started my dream at, in D.C.," Robinson said, "and to be able to come back home would mean a lot to me, because that's something that you fantasize in your mind about when you're little, bringing the city back to where it belongs."

He'd be a nice fit here... if only now they could get rid of Blatche and Lewis maybe this organization can start improving

True, he would form a nice young core with Wall, Crawford and the foreign kid they got last year

While it would be a cool story, I hope he doesn't go there. He's got a pretty good head on his shoulders, but sometimes it's not always good to go back home. Well, better than to Charlotte I guess.

I"m feeling he will be picked by Charlotte who has to start the rebuilding process somewhere.

Agreed! Might be a bad place for him to start a new life and a new career! Durant was right and he doesn't have the pressure of playing at his hometown.

I see you have never been to Charlotte by that comment...MANY athletes and celebs live here in the off season bc of the weather and the city. Its actually a great place to live, this coming from a native NYer who has lived here the last 12 yrs
