Nate Robinson seems like he’s enjoying himself since going over to Israel. The former slam dunk contest champion has gotten into trash talk battles with cyclists, and he made a big splash in his first game for his new team Hapoel Tel Aviv.
The NBA journeyman has proven a capable scorer at all levels he’s played at over the years, but he took his game to the next level during a recent playoff game for Hapoel Tel Aviv against Hoepel Jerusalem. Although his team lost 99-97 in overtime, Robinson exploded for 46 points on seven-of-10 shooting from three-point range in the loss.
After the game, Robinson tweeted out a link to the highlights of his performance, which is a very Nate Robinson thing to do.
It remains to be seen if we’ve seen the last of Robinson in an NBA uniform, but as he proved with his performance, he still has a lot to offer on the court.
