Nate Robinson says he’s the most underrated player ever

Nate Robinson

Former NBA player Nate Robinson is one of the smallest guys to ever to play on the court. But that fact did not prevent him from leaping high in his career.

The 5-foot-9 guard was known in his heyday as a highflying small man who could reach the rim with ease. Above all, his feud with fellow Slam Dunk contest contender Dwight Howard was entertaining.

The three-time slam dunk champion is known as the seven-footer Howard’s kryptonite.

A decade removed, Nate Robinson is no longer playing in the NBA. He is currently in Lebanon to share his skills with local team Homenetmen Beirut. Robinson also played in Israel in 2016 with Hapoel Tel Aviv and in Venzeula in 2017 with Guaros de Lara.

In an interview with BleacherReport, Robinson described himself as one of the most underrated NBA players. He also named current Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker as one.

Robinson played for the Washington Huskies during his college days. He was then drafted by the New York Knicks as the 21st overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft.

Mostly used as a bench player, Robinson delivered in his five-year stint with the Knicks. He played in 312 games for the team and averaged 12.5 points per game.

Robinson’s defining game came in March of 2008 when he poured in 45 points in a 120-114 loss against the Portland Trail Blazers.

After departing with the Knicks, Robinson spent time with seven other teams with whom he did not last more than two seasons. Namely the Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder,Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers and the New Orleans Pelicans.
