NBA: How Good is Nate Robinson Going to Be?

By Steve "Supreme Commander" Cernak

Nate Robinson blocked Yao Ming, insane when you consider the 18” height differential (5’9” – 7’6”).

Admittedly I’m a Knicks fan, but what type of potential does Nate possess? He’s got an interesting résumé so far: (1) OT game-winner over Allen Iverson (2) 2006 Slam Dunk Champion (3) his block against Yao and (4) a two time All Pac-10 and a third team All-American in 2005. He’s also played as a D-I cornerback for Washington.

I’m not 100 percent sure he’ll overcome his height, however, he clearly has the athletic gifts to succeed.
