Nate Robinson plays COD5 on XBox Live

New York Knicks point guard Nate Robinson apparently enjoys playing the video game Call of Duty 5 on XBox Live.

According to Al Trautwig of the MSG television station, Robinson was playing COD5 against some random other player via the internet, and told the guy who he was.

Naturally, the guy doubted he was playing with a real NBA player.

So, according to Trautwig, Robinson told the guy that to prove it’s really him, he’d do a COD5 salute during his next free throws.

And Saturday evening, as the Knicks were in Philadelphia playing against the 76ers, Robinson did just that, in the second quarter.

Hopefully, that gamer was watching.
