Nate Robinson trying to get back int the NBA isn’t anything new. The now-33 year old guard hasn’t suited up for a team in the league since 2015, but like anyone who has a reputation for being a dynamic scorer, Robinson is convinced that he can still get buckets at any time.
Robinson has made a few attempts at convincing a team to bring him back — within two days last year, he tried to convince the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls that it was worth bringing him on board. He even tried his hand at the NFL, although that didn’t work out, either.
And now, Robinson is heading back to the well with the hopes that he can head back to the Windy City. Robinson posted a video of himself getting buckets from his days in Chicago. It was complete with a caption telling the Bulls that they could use a player like him.
The Bulls have the worst record in the NBA, and even though they’re still waiting for Zach LaVine to come back, it’s hard to see them suddenly flipping a switch and becoming a playoff contender. This is not to say that signing Robinson would be a smart idea — he’d still need to prove that he can, you know, play at an NBA level — but a team like Chicago would be the ideal fit for him in the event he could still get the job done.
