Over the past few seasons of the CBS reality series Survivor, we have seen plenty of former professional athletes and coaches making their way onto the cast. The former pros generally don’t do well on the show once people realize who they are and begin thinking that the athletes “don’t need the money,” so it is common practice to lie about your profession at the start.
For former NBA all-star Clifford Robinson, that may not be so easy.
Thank you for all the love. I’m glad I can finally confirm that I’m on the next season of #Survivor.

Robinson announced on his Twitter account that he will be on the next season of the show, Survivor: Cagayan, but he is going to have a hard time playing off who he is thanks to his 6-foot-10 frame. All you need to do is look at the cast photo above and you will know which man is Robinson.
During Robinson’s 18-year NBA career, he was named Sixth Man of the Year (1993) and landed on the second team NBA All-Defensive team on two separate occasions. He spent his career with the Portland Trail Blazers, Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Suns and New Jersey Nets.
