Nate Robinson Gives New Meaning To ‘Through the Legs’
The NBA D-League boasts plenty of attractions, including Nate Robinson, who is proving himself as must-see basketball entertainment on a nightly basis.
We've seen Robinson rise up and elevate in the NBA Dunk Contest, but he proved this weekend he has no problem staying low. The 5-foot-9 guard used his small stature as an asset during a weekend matchup between Raptors 905 and the Delaware 87ers.
Caught in a double-team trap, Robinson weaseled his way out of a tight situation. While most basketball players would look to split the trap or pass to a teammate, Robinson found a different route.
Guarded by 7-foot-3 Edy Tavares, Robinson went through Tavares' legs and exploded towards the basket.
Robinson didn't knock down the shot after the nifty "nutmeg" move, but he was fouled on the play.
Sometimes, it pays to be the little guy.
