Glenn Robinson III
Glenn Robinson III, 2017 NBA Dunk Champion, was born on January 8, 1994 in Gary, Indiana. He is the son of Glenn Robinson, the Big Dog, who was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the first overall pick in the 1994 NBA Draft. He attended the University of Michigan, and was a part of the Big 10 All-Freshman team in 2013. As a member of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship Game, Robinson and his starting teammates were all drafted into the NBA in the 2013 or 2014 NBA Draft. He was drafted in 2014 as a 2nd round, 40th overall pick and plays the small forward position for the Minnesota Timberwolves. With a wicked jump shot like his pops, don’t be tempted to call Glenn Robinson III Little Dog as he’s a Big Dog in his own right, whose game is just as scary as his bark. And if Trey doesn’t go through you, with his 44-inch vertical jump, he is just as likely to hop right over you as he is about to dunk over you. He’ll even sign the poster of you for you.
