He led Gary (Indiana) Roosevelt High School to a state basketball championship and was a McDonald's All-American before playing college basketball at Purdue University, and in 1994 he received the Wooden and Naismith Awards. Robinson was also unanimously elected as Big Ten Player of the Year following his junior campaign. On the season, he averaged 30.3 points and more than 10 rebounds per game, leading the Big Ten in both categories. Robinson's college coach, Gene Keady, commented that Robinson was "an absolute warrior on the court, especially the practice court. If all my players practiced with the same intensity and listened to his coaches as he does, my job would be much easier."

He was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the first overall pick in the 1994 NBA draft. It was widely rumored that, since the previous year's #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft had signed a contract for over $90 million, Robinson and his agent attempted to secure a contract in excess of $100 million. This was never confirmed by either Robinson or his agent, but was widely regarded as fact. After a holdout that lasted until the beginning of training camp, he eventually signed a then unprecedented 10-year, $68 million deal. During his first pro year, he was twice named the Schick NBA Rookie of the Month and was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team after a leading rookie average of 21.9 points per game. Robinson's community contributions in the Milwaukee area and in his home town of Gary, Indiana on behalf of under-priviledged children were largely unpublicized, owing to the fact Robinson was and is naturally a very reserved, almost shy person off the court. Robinson preferred to keep as low a profile as possible.
