The careers of basketball players can be unpredictable at times, as is the case for Justin Robinson, son of NBA legend David Robinson "The Admiral" who was part of Elitzur Netanya of the National League until October 7, was appointed Tuesday as an assistant coach at Duke College, and will work under Ex Maccabi Tel Aviv John Shayer. Robinson will be responsible for player development.

"It's unfortunate what happened with J. Rob," Duke coach Jon Scheyer said that night. "He was in Israel when it all happened on October 7 and his season was postponed. He came back to San Antonio, and yesterday he came here. He's a guy who, when he's around, you're happy. It was great to have him here tonight."
