Note the wording: pencilled, not penned. That choice of calligraphy has nothing to do with status, more to do with how coach Lionel Hollins' memory is working on the given night. Here's more from the New York Post's Tim Bontemps after Brooklyn's 92-91 preseason victory over the 76ers this...

Thomas Robinson: 'I'm tired of disrespect'

It's Thomas Robinson's fourth year in the NBA, and we're yet to see any regular-season evidence that he can be close to the player scouts thought be'd become when he heard his name called fifth in the 2012 NBA draft. Instead, Robinson has lingered around the league, playing stints with the Kings, Rockets, Trail Blazers and 76ers while also even acting as a member of the Nuggets for...

Thomas Robinson Finds His Niche
