Former New York Knicks’ point guard Nate Robinson will be playing this summer at an NBA arena near you.
Former New York Knicks’ point guard Nate Robinson will be a co-captain for a BIG3 team called the Tri-State, along with former NBA star Jermaine O’Neal, according to Bleacher Report.
The 33 year-old Robinson last played in the NBA for the New Orleans Pelicans during the 2015-16 season. He has since played over seas for Hapoel Tel Aviv and most recently Guaros de Lara. He was also on the Philadelphia 76ers’ G League team, the Delaware 87ers last year.
The Knicks used the 21st overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft on Robinson, who played his college ball at the University of Washington. New York ended up trading him to the Boston Celtics in 2010 and that was it for his time in the Big Apple.
During his time in the NBA, Robinson only averaged 11 points and three assists per game. One of the most impressive things he ever did was winning the 2006 Slam Dunk contest, given the fact that he’s only 5-feet-9.
It will be interesting to see how Robinson will look in a half-court, three-on-three game. I just hope that the BIG3 will stop taping their games and start showing them live.
