Craig Robinson, the brother of former First Lady Michelle Obama, has landed a job with the the New York Knicks. 

Robinson, 55, will work in the Knicks’ front-office focusing on player development, an insider confirmed via a Yahoo! report.

Robinson’s experience with basketball is extensive. For one year, he served as the Vice President of Player and Organizational Development for the Milwaukee Bucks. His impact was proven in rookie Malcolm Brogdon. 

Robinson was also the head coach at Brown University and Oregon State for a combined eight seasons.

Robinson bonds with his sister’s husband, former President Barack Obama, on the basketball court. 

“When I played basketball with Barack, he was quietly confident, which means he had good self-esteem without being cocky. He was certainly a team player — he wasn’t a pig, he passed when he was supposed to pass, and he cut when he was supposed to cut. To me, that speaks to a lack of selfishness,” Robinson told Esquire Magazine.
Obama’s love for basketball is an understatement. During his tenure as commander-in-chief, Obama participated in several bracketology.

Media But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.
