Nate Robinson is short (for the NBA) but still gets most of his publicity for big dunks above the rim. On Wednesday night, however, it was some lower-altitude moves that have fans marveling at Robinson’s skills once again. With under three minutes left in the Bulls’ game against the Suns, Robinson received a pass near the left baseline and pump faked. Sebastian Telfair, who was guarding Robinson, bit on the fake — and bit hard. So, Robinson improvised and ducked under Telfair’s legs while the defender was flying through the air, cutting quickly to the hoop for an easy layup. It’s pretty spectacular. Check it out in the video below, with a hat tip to the Bright Side of the Sun blog for this one.

BETWEEN THE LEGS
Here is a video of Nate Robinson going between the legs of Sebastian Telfair to make a layup on Wednesday night when the Bulls took on the Suns.Robinson is listed around 5'8 but he is probably a lot shorter than that. Robinson pump fakes Telfair into jumping and then goes between Telfair's legs on his way to the rim.
We have seen numerous dribbles between defenders, but it is not that often that we see an entire person go under a defender’s legs. On Wednesday night when the Bulls took on the Suns Nate Robinson used his 5′ 9″ height to his advantage. Nate made a great ball fake which Sebastian Telfair fell for, Telfair jumped to block the shots, but Nate hit the brakes and Telfair flew...

With the diverse array of remarkable athletes currently playing in the NBA, it’s an extremely common occurrence to see or hear about players rising up over the defense to finish a dunk or a layup. Sometimes, a guy will even leap right over a defender’s head, as LeBron James did to John Lucas III just last season. Just how frequently, though, do you catch a ball handler ducking...

This video was too great not to share. Former Celtic Nate Robinson makes use of his 5'8" frame and goes through Sebastian Telfair's legs before making a lay-up. Hilarious.
