A wise man once said… “Freeze, hey Somebody bring me back some money please, hey I got a million ways to get it, choose one Hey, bring it back, bring it back Now double your money and make a stack” – Jay Z — “On to the Next One” While he hasn’t stayed in one place very long — five years in New York being the longest – Nate Robinson has had the opportunity to play for some of the most storied franchises in the NBA.  The Knicks, Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls sandwich a short stint in Oklahoma City. Nate Robinson is on the move again. (Photo: Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports) Best suited coming off the bench and providing energy, Robinson turned his backup role in Chicago into a two-year contract with the Denver Nuggets.  While not quite at the level of Jimmy Jackson, Joe Smith, Chucky Brown and Tony Massenburg (12 teams apiece), Robinson has yet to unpack his bags in the last four years. After playing a more prominent role in Golden State and Chicago, where Robinson once again returned to posting double-digit points, the Nuggets are hoping the same energy and production can help their second unit. While there have been many stories written about Robinson’s questionable shot selection — whether they are falling or not — his ability to push the tempo has never been in doubt. The question of where Robinson fits in as part of the Nuggets’ backcourt is a tough one.  Possessing a two-year, $2 million contract, the UW alumn makes moving Andre Miller a viable option.  Until that time, he can split a backup role behind either Miller or Ty Lawson. It is widely known that both Lawson and Miller are far more effective with the ball in their hands, so look for Robinson to be paired up with either one as the off-guard. If there is any chance of replicating the 40-percent shooting from downtown that Robinson provided the Bulls last season, playing alongside either of the pass-first guards will result in some easy looks. While many question Robinson’s decision making on the court, the one thing that has never been in doubt, be it during his time at Rainer Beach, the University of Washington or any of his six NBA stops, is his heart and desire to want to play. Flashback to a period of Robinson’s darkest days in New York: shackled to the end of Mike D’Antoni’s bench for fourteen straight games — almost a month without any sign of court time — Robinson put in a memorable performance that had both the East and West coast talking. Dropping 41 points in 38 minutes off the bench in a 112-108 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, Robinson proved that the lil man from Seattle belonged in the league. Playing in the Nuggets’ up-tempo offence, and with former guard Brian Shaw now patrolling the sidelines in a long awaited head coaching capacity, Robinson may have finally found himself looking at a long term place to rest his head.  Whether it be picking up pointers from Shaw and Miller or running alongside Lawson on the fast break — or even teaming up once again with former Knick forwards Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler — watching Robinson and the rest of the Denver Nuggets will make the 2013-14 NBA season 82 games full of fun and adventure. Two words that can best describe watching Nate Robinson’s NBA career. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE POSTS IN OUR COFFEE SHOP BLOG! (For NW Sports Fans!)
