Someone gave Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson a special locker at New Orleans Arena before Tuesday night's game against the Hornets.
The locker was about the same size as the regular locker, but the hanging bar for the clothes was positioned at about half the height of where the bar normally should be. That gave someone the perfect opportunity to "give" Robinson that locker as a playful nod to his 5-foot-9 frame. Naturally, Bulls teammate Rip Hamilton couldn't resist sharing it with the world via Twitter and Instagram:
The ball boy got word that @naterobinson was coming to play the Hornets. So he gave him his own special hanging bar for his cloths. Guess which locker is his. No word yet who actually put Robinson's clothes there, but very well played.
