Robert Poisson was born as the second of three sons to Marius and Élodie Poisson (neé Diepstraten). His older brother, Adrien, is currently a national representative in swimming; his younger brother, Fabian, is currently a central midfielder for RSC Anderlecht.
With Marius being a commercial fishermarten who’d often be out at sea for weeks at a time, Élodie often could not handle the three rambunctious pups alone and had to rely on outlets outside the household. Robert’s first contact with sports happened when Élodie introduced her three sons to the RSC Anderlecht youth academy; out of the three, Fabian was the only one to really show decent talent in football, and the other two were soon no longer with the team. With Robert being the tallest out of the three even in childhood, Élodie thought it was a good idea to introduce him to the sport of basketball, and before he even knew it, Robert was a member of the youth team for the biggest basketball club in the nation. As for Adrien, it would take a little longer for him to find his natural talent in swimming; the other two like to tease that he was the most late-blooming talent out of the three.
Robert initially started out as a shooting guard; however, continuous growth spurts during his teenage years forced him to transition to taller positions: first small forward, then power forward, and finally, as he topped out seven feet at the age of 18, the center position. Instead of attempting to adjust his playing style accordingly, however, Robert continued to play a three-pointer oriented style even in the pivot line. While his rebounding skills were not polished just yet, he could get by with his height alone, and being threatening from both inside and out quickly made him the biggest offensive target on the team. It was at this point that American scouts took note of him as a potential entrant into the FBA, and upon careful consideration, Robert decided to follow the “American dream” and enroll in Boston Interspecies College, an organization that produced several top draftees in recent years.
Robert’s rebounding took a hit once he started playing at the FCAA level, but his scoring skills were still pretty legit, and he soon became the team’s leading scorer once he picked himself up. He also gained a reputation by calling himself “The Maverick”, putting on tattoos, changing his hair every few months, and generally refusing to conform to the norm. Deciding that he was ready for the draft after two years of college, Robert enters his name as a peculiar, but enticing, bigfur prospect.
