Thunder acquire dunk champion Nate Robinson in trade

Nate Robinson is best known for his slam dunk contest success.

He is the only player to have won the contest three times. The fact that he's only 5-foot-9 elevates the accomplishment even more.

A first-round draft pick out of Washington, Robinson has only played for the Knicks and the Celtics. He spent the first four years of his career and part of the 2009-10 season in New York, then was traded to the Celtics in a trade that involved Eddie House and Bill Walker.

"Will miss all my Boston fans," Robinson wrote on his Twitter account Thursday afternoon. "I love y'all."

A minute later, though, he said that he needed to change his Celtics background on his account, and another minute later, he was asking what jersey number he should wear with the Thunder.

Robinson has averaged 7.1 points and 1.9 assists in 17.9 minutes this season.
