NBA Draft 2012: Ranking 5 Best Team Fits for Thomas Robinson

The uncertainty of the 2012 NBA draft will begin after Anthony Davis is selected No. 1 overall by New Orleans, when the Charlotte Bobcats are on the clock with the second pick.

Of this year's draft class, Davis included, perhaps no player is more ready for the professional game than Kansas forward Thomas Robinson.

Robinson is built like a refrigerator, and to say that he has an "NBA body" would be inaccurate. There aren't many players in the league not named LeBron James or Dwight Howard that are built like Robinson.

He'll enter next week's draft full of potential and inflated with confidence.

When the presumed top pick Anthony Davis walked into the interview room at the 2012 NBA Scouting Combine, he did so wearing a shirt that read "check my stats." Robinson made sure to point out that he had the better stats of the two, and he isn't buying the hype on Davis.

If Robinson maximizes his potential and lives up to his own expectations, he could very well end up being the best player from this draft five years down the road. Some expect him be drafted as high as No. 2 to the Bobcats, while others think there's a chance he'll fall out of the top five.

Some teams (Charlotte) are more realistic than others (Portland), but there are a handful of teams that are considered possible destinations for Robinson. Let's take a look at the five best team fits for Thomas Robinson.
