Our new series #GameFaceOn had lift off earlier this week with basketball star Justin Robinson.  

The most valuable player in the BBL (the top men’s professional league in the UK) for the past two seasons, Justin gave us a fascinating insight into the life and times of a professional basketball player.

From being taken under the wing of the legendary Jimmy Rogers at Brixton Topcats at just 8 years old, making the grade at high school and then college basketball in the USA, forging a stellar career playing professionally across Europe before returning home in 2017 to play for London Lions, Robinson’s competitive fires continue to burn as brightly as ever.

Now an integral part of arguably the strongest side ever assembled by London Lions – who play out of the iconic Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park – Justin also gave us his thoughts on the Lions upcoming debut in the Basketball Champions League and defending their BBL title into 2021.
