It seems like somebody in the NBA could still use Nate Robinson. But that's not how all 30 GMs see it so here we are. Instead Robinson, who just less than two weeks ago was pondering a future in the NFL, has taken his talents across the Atlantic to lace his sneakers up for Hapoel Tel Aviv in Israel. In ten games he'll make somewhere between $50,000 and $60,000.
Two nights ago he made his debut, spending 31 minutes on the floor, and filling up the stat sheet with 25 points, four assists and three steals. Not bad for a guy who A.) Only had two practices before his first game. And B.) Is 31.
He also capped his opening performance with a seriously long-range three that'd impress any crowd outside of Oracle Arena. You may notice he didn't even care to watch it go in:
His opening showing helped lead his team to a 103-94 win for his squad who are two games away from both making the playoffs (on one side) and being relegated (on the other).
