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.

Even if you have star potential you don't know what could happen to you. Might want to read up on Jason Williams (not the murderer spelled Jayson, the other one) before you spend all that money.

Property is a bad investment - ever heard of property taxes? Taxes have made more people homeless than Hurricanes. The Dow Jones is nothing more than legalized gambling- no ethics, no rules, no stability. If, however, one were to buy Businesses, and good people to manage them, you have something that actually makes money and doesn't lose money.

Anyone who goes to an NBA game and pays the outrageous prices to put money in the pockets of fools like this is stupid. Look no further than the NBA to see exactly what is wrong with this country.

He is going to need it because 70 to 80% of these NBA idiots are flat broke a few years out of the league. What a ****ing moron.
