Well I didn’t see that one coming.
A few days ago we reported that Denver Nuggets point guard Nate Robinson, was switching his jersey number to 10, in honor of the best soccer player in the world Lionel Messi.
Well somehow, the Argentinian heard of Robinson’s tribute, and posted a message of support on his Facebook account to Lil Nate, according to the guys at The Basketball Jones.
Hey man, what a great surprise to see you are using the number 10. Welcome to the #10Team – Nate Robinson, wishing you the best on your next season with the Nuggets #NateBigFan
This is kind of incredible, Messi, a global superstar, took time out of his day to give a NBA role player, (although a pretty popular one) a shout out. The power of the internet.
