Nate Robinson arrested for driving without licensePosted by Inside Hoops
The New York Daily News reports: Pint-size Knicks star Nate Robinson was slam-dunked in the Bronx Tuesday for driving without a license. The high-octane guard, whose driver’s license has been suspended since June for an outstanding summons, was booked Tuesday night at the 52nd Precinct stationhouse. He held a magazine to shield his face as he hopped into a waiting car after receiving a summons.
The New York Post reports: “According to DMV records, Robinson’s license has been suspended five times in 14 months. Robinson, an instigator in the infamous Denver brawl three seasons ago, still treated the latest pullover as it was a joke, showing he doesn’t learn from mistakes.”
InsideHoops.com editor says: Nate should have simply jumped the entire distance of where he wanted to go. As for the Knicks, they’re hesitant to add any long term contracts at all, with an eye on top superstars possibly available in 2010. Robinson is a very good scorer and entertainer but the Knicks aren’t big fans of other aspects of his game.
August 25 Update: The issue has been cleared up. Nate can drive again.
