NBA vet Nate Robinson did his best El Chapo impression last night in the D-League. The former Slam Dunk Champion isn’t leaping over 7-footers anymore, he’s going under them.
Nate is currently playing with the Delaware Sevens of the D-League with the hope of earning a late-season call-up.
During the Sevens’ 110-90 loss to Raptors 905 – whatever the hell that is – the 5’9” Robinson was caught in a half-court trap by 7’3” Raptor center Edy Tavares and some white dude with a man-bun.
Faced with a possible turnover, Robinson spotted daylight between Tavares’ legs and ducked through the rabbit hole. It’s the first known human nutmeg in the history of professional basketball.
There’s a first time for everything, and even if Nate doesn’t make it back to the league, it’s a helluva highlight to end a career. There’s zero shame in an 11-year NBA run from a guy that was never supposed to be there.
This highlight should live roughly forever.
