Is it a possibility the New York Knicks could entertain the idea of bringing back Nate Robinson with their Taxpayer Mini Mid? Stranger things have happened. Scenario: The only reason this could ever happen would be if J.R. Smith leaves via free agency and the Knicks are left without the 6th man and a back up 2 guard. Nate fits that mold perfectly. Nate Robinson has had a decent year in a Bulls uniform and had a spectacular playoffs. He has certainly earned a 2 to 3 year deal somewhere in the NBA, if not with Chicago. Starting or coming off the bench, he has been a consistent shooter and was the catalyst in that thrilling 3-overtime game against the Nets in the 1st round and the upset game 1 victory over the Miami Heat. Has he matured to the point of coming back to NY? That is a question I cannot answer, but he has been an NBA journeyman since leaving New York. The next stop for Nate is out of the league if he does not change his immature ways and play. He has ALL the talent in the world and definitely is a spark off the bench for the Bulls this year. Without the services of J.R. Smith, Nate could fill that roll admirably. He can shoot, pass and play D when he is focused. The key is to keep him focused, which many coaches in this league have not. I am weary about bringing players back that were thrown away like garbage, but sometimes these players go out in the NBA and mature enough to come back to New York. Coach Mike Woodson could have another project on his hands; this one could be the biggest challenge yet! Could he be a better 6th man and offensive weapon for the New York Knicks? He might be!
