Robinson was fabulous in Chicago’s big Game 4 comeback against Brooklyn, with 34 points in a 142-134 triple-overtime win, and was again Monday night, with 27 points in a 93-86 upset of Miami.
So, did the Thunder miss the boat by not retaining Robinson?
No. Robinson is a dynamo at times. He’s also played for five franchises in the past 37 months.
Robinson has massive defensive deficiencies and definitely dominates the ball. On most teams, that’s a huge problem. On this Chicago team, which is dying on the vine for offense, Robinson becomes valuable.
With the Thunder, Robinson was a demonstrative cheerleader and no locker room problem, as far as we know. But he clearly didn’t – and doesn’t – fit the Thunder culture. The Thunder has come a long way fast by sticking to its core principles. Nate Robinson seems a dubious place to start compromising.
