Good luck trying to pick a favorite part of this clip. It could be Nate Robinson dancing, it could be the reactions he gets from his teammates, and it could easily be watching Timofey Mozgov trying to learn NateRob’s dance moves, an adventure fraught with folly if I’ve ever heard one.
As for me, I’ll just delight in knowing that the entire thing is soundtracked by Deion Sanders’ seminal hit “Must Be the Money.” Just a hunch, but I’m gonna guess Nate made the call on that one. Rumor has it “Bad Rap Songs You Should Like” isn’t on the “How to Act Like Nate Robinson” syllabus until Week 9.
On Wednesday’s live episode of The Starters, “Tiny Tas” pays off last month’s Pick ‘Em loss while discussing with the guys: the Clippers and Rockets’ title chances, Klay Thompson’s game-winner, the Spurs’ ball movement, who’s third in the MVP race, basketball movies, fun players to watch, and the idea of adding a play-in tournament to determine the eight seed. Keep your head on a swivel.
Shoutout: Kevin Durant went for 42 on 14-20 shooting in 33 minutes and Russell Westbrook had the second-fastest triple-double ever in their win over the 76ers. They’re good.
Not so much: Well, both of those things happened to the Sixers, plus they lost by 33, plus they’ve now lost 15 straight games, so an easy choice. They’re bad.
Height: George Hill is a pretty good point guard defender. Klay Thompson is a lot taller than most point guards. Ergo…
16 points in the fourth quarter for Klay Thompson, including those two very important ones right there at the end. He should expect a HUGE bump in his allowance this week.
