HoopsHype Nate Robinson rumors

The two now will sit in adjacent lockers. It promises to be a spirited setup as the boisterous Robinson interacts with the calm, quiet Chandler. “He laughs and giggles, but other than that, Wilson’s a quiet guy,” Robinson said. “I’m the total opposite. It’s going to work. Opposites attract.” NBA.com

One of Nate Robinson’s goals this season is to keep Wilson Chandler smiling. He’s off to a good start. Chandler was all smiles when he heard that Robinson was signing with the Nuggets last month. The two became good friends while playing for the New York Knicks from 2007-10. “He’s one of the most genuine guys in the NBA,” Chandler said. “A lot of the stuff in the NBA is about perception. He’s just being himself all the time. That’s what makes him one of the most genuine people.” NBA.com

The Nuggets will be Robinson’s sixth team in five seasons, a fact that raises questions in some NBA circles. It’s a fact that Robinson shrugs off with ease. “People say he’s this type of player, this type of guy, he’s this, he’s that. People don’t know Nate Robinson until you’ve been around me,” he said. “God is the only person that can judge me. I really could care less what anybody else thinks of me. I think that’s really helped me out over the years. “I’m human like anybody else. I’m going to make mistakes, but the good outweighs the bad. I accept my faults and my strengths and I move on.” NBA.com

But Nate Robinson remains an unsigned free agent and when free agency opened on July 1, no one expected he would go unsigned for this long. Last week, Robinson took in the Bulls summer league contest in Las Vegas and joined the broadcast crew (after signing a baby, no less) to talk about his situation and the frustration of still being without a new team and having the security of a new contract was apparent. “It's frustrating because you put in your hard work. I worked my butt off year in and year out, ever since I was a little boy, to get to this point now, not to be signed. But at the same time, I'm not going to let that discourage me of being who I am, just working hard. I want people to understand and know Nate Robinson is that player who's going to play his heart out, no matter what, good or bad.NBC Chicago
