On Wednesday, CBS announced Robinson would be a cast member of Survivor: Cagayan, which premieres Feb. 26.
"It's a challenge to come out here and see if I can one, play the game, and maneuver through the game at 6-10," Robinson said in a bio video for the show.
The 46-year-old Robinson, who played 18 seasons in the NBA and was named an All-Star in 1994, cited his reason for being on "Survivor" on his bio: "The challenge of the show being so tough, and the million dollars." And why does he think he'll win? "I think I would do well in challenges. I also have a good ability to make people feel comfortable with me."
Robinson played 1,380 games in the NBA with the Portland Trailblazers, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, and Golden State Warriors, averaging 14.2 points and 4.6 rebounds.
