Default Little Nate

I agree with a few of you guys regarding Nate Robinson. He will never be a point guard, he is too small to be a shooting guard, he doesn't pass, has an average shot, and is going to end someone's career because he plays like a football player. He needs to be traded while he still has some value.

He brings energy off the bench. That's it.

I disagree.

Nate's speed, quickness, athleticisim and drive will set him apart. He makes a diference off the bench by changing the tempo. Under Isaiah, he will thrive and eventually learn how to play point guard.

The only question I have, will he eventually become an all star?

I would guess that he will.

Well Isiah claims that he is good at developing young players we will see want he can do with Nate this year.

Good point. You are right!

Unlike LB, who criticised Nate for being a "highlight show" instead of a point guard, in the Summer League, Isah took the leash off of Nate and encouraged him to be a highlight show and do all he could do. Isah said, we are in show-business, Nate should play entertaining basketball and delight the crowd. I will encourage him to do that while developing his game.

Larry was beyond funny. Larry actually benched Nate for winning the slam dunk contest. True Story! lol

Larry had said that he did not want the Slam Dunk contest to go to Nate's head.


You don't remember Nate wearing a suit after the all-star break?

You're right. LB is like an Army drill Sargent; he wants to break down his players before training them. Nate was too arrogant for LB!

Someday Nate may actually live up to his discription of himself as "Nate the Great!"

If so, then Nate the Great and Smokey the Bear will have the same middle name "the." Ha ha

I hope Nate gets better. I still remember watching a game with nyk against miami. nate was sprinting out for the dunk and didnt know wade was behind him. When he went up to dunk it he got hammered.

I don't like Nate. He is not a player with a high basketball IQ, which leads him to make bad decisions. He needs to slow down, and learn the game if he wants to be a legit NBA player.
