What comes to mind when you think of Nate Robinson? The spark of the bench, right? Exactly. That’s just what the Sixers need.
This past season with the Chicago Bulls, Robinson shot .433 % from the field, .405 behind the 3-point line, and .799 from the free throw line. He also averaged 13.1 PPG, 4.4 APG, and 2.2 RPG. In the past postseason, he averaged 16.3 PPG, but don’t let that stat fool you. In game 4 in the Conference Quarterfinals against the Brooklyn Nets, he put 34 points up on the board and 20 points the following game. In game 1 in the Conference Semifinals against the Miami Heat, he scored 27 points and in game 5, 21 points. He pretty much carried this team on his back, mainly in the playoffs while the Bulls dealt with many injuries.
Although at times Nate can be a streaky shooter, when he’s on fire, he’s unstoppable. He can completely take over a game. He’s a play maker, he can drive in the lane, get past defenders, drain the 3, and shoot from the field. He is the full package. Robinson brings a tremendous amount of energy to court. He truly is the definition of the spark off the bench and would make a perfect 6th man off the bench for the Sixers.
If he lands in Philly, he will automatically turn into a fan favorite, I can guarantee that.
This 5’9” guard is a pretty amazing guy and is so fun to watch.
