NBA Lottery Pick

Thomas Robinson -- I'm

Gonna Spend My $$$ On ...

5/8/2012 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

050812_robinson_jardin
Thomas Robinson is projected to be a top 5 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft ... which means he's gonna be RICH ... and he's already got an investment strategy -- DIAMONDS.

The former Kansas Jayhawks superstar was outside of Katsuya with a group of buddies ... a group that included Syracuse superstar Scoop Jardine ... who's ALSO expected to be drafted.

The guys couldn't have been nicer ... but it's obvious, they have VERY different ideas when it comes to spending their money.

Robinson -- 6'10" and 240 lbs -- was also sporting a Washington Nationals hat ... interesting, considering some NBA insiders are projecting that he'll go to the Washington Wizards.

Robinson and Jardine will learn their fates on June 28 -- when the NBA Draft goes down in NJ.

Think the best way to invest a lot of money is to put it in the bank and leave it there and just live off the interest money.

The all white and red format is too harsh on the eyes. TMZ needs to revamp this website, this new format is awful

Gangs, drugs and bling. That is what the majority of them think about. He will be walking around with a roll of hundreds in his pocket, buying drugs and carrying enough gold around his neck to add 20 lbs to his frame.

Two years after he plays his last professional game he will be flat broke. I guarantee it. Too bad you can't make money off of predictions that are so obvious.

Someone should tell them to look at history. How many black athletes have become rich and blew their money on crap? Learn from the past or you will repeat it. Don't be as dumb as those in the past.

Two things:

1. Robinson is from DC hence the Nationals cap
2. He is the real deal who lost his mother and grandparents within weeks and is focused on adopting his younger sister: http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/7207167/ncb-kansas-jayhawks-center-thomas-robinson-used-basketball-help-tragedy-espn-magazine
