After an extended run in the 'He Got Game' colorway, Nate Robinson switched to an often overlooked Air Jordan 13 for yesterday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Robinson hooped in the White/Neutral Grey/University Blue retro, which released 10 years ago this month. These were initially given a 'Carolina' nickname, but it hasn't really help up over the years.

Robinson made it clear he wanted to return to the Bulls in 2013, but without much money to spend, they chose not to do it and Robinson got a two-year deal in Denver. Even so, he was happy to be back at the United Center. "It's always lovely to come back here," Robinson said. "I tell people Chicago's my second home. Everybody's like, 'We'd love to have you back.' Just to hear that, you can tell they really appreciate what I did here and what I brought to the table, because I did it from my heart and did it for the fans." Arlington Heights Daily Herald

Aaron Brooks played pee-wee football with fellow Seattle native Nate Robinson, starting when he was 7 years old. "We never lost, every age group," Brooks said before Thursday's game. Brooks and Robinson played AAU basketball and ran track together, but there's one sport Robinson refuses to play Brooks. "Aaron's a heck of a bowler," Robinson said. "He's probably the best bowler in the NBA, left or right handed. Him and his family have been doing bowling leagues since he was 2 or 3 years old." Arlington Heights Daily Herald

Mike McGraw: Nate is one year older than Brooks. They went to different high schools in Seattle but have been friends for a long time. Nate also said he's hoping Brooks isn't a one-and-done with the #Bulls, like a couple other successful backup PGs. #Bulls Twitter @McGrawDHBulls

The Nuggets won't practice again until Tuesday, meaning if all goes well, Robinson's best chance for getting into a game likely will be Wednesday night against Houston at the Pepsi Center. "I had a pretty bad knee to the back," Robinson said. "It's probably one of the worst pains I've ever felt in live action, besides playing football. But me, if I'm not playing, I'm really hurt. That's my thing. I hate being out. I want to help this team get to win every game possible. I want to bring my energy, but I know my health is important. And I want to last in the league for a while. I'm not going to force a couple of games when my back's not right. So right now, I'm just day to day. Getting healthy is my main concern." Denver Post

The Nuggets will go into Monday's game at Cleveland without Danilo Gallinari and Nate Robinson, coach Brian Shaw said Sunday. Gallinari and Robinson are not yet cleared to play in back-to-back games. Robinson is dealing with more nicks and bruises on top of making sure his surgically repaired knee is fully healthy. "Nate and Gallo will be out for sure," Shaw said. "We'll see about J.J. (Hickson)." Denver Post

Arguably the biggest sneakerhead in the NBA, Nate Robinson isn't about that keeping his kicks in the closet life. He's not even saving them for pre and post-game stunting. When Nate gets his hands on a fresh pair, he intends to wear them on the court, just as he did in tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings. While everybody else was parading around in team colored sneakers from their respective brands, Nate was playing in the colorful 'Miro' Air Jordan 7 Retro from 2008. This shoe came dangerously close to making Our (Least) Favorite Colorway of Every Air Jordan list, but we know there's a lot of you out there who disagree. Sole Collector

Player contracts due to expire at the end of this season belong to guard Nate Robinson and forward Darrell Arthur. Both have expressed a desire to return to the team, but both will be unrestricted free agents next summer, free to sign with any team in the league. Meanwhile, Arron Afflalo has a player option for his final season. It will pay him $7.5 million for his last season, and he would be an unrestricted free agent at its end, in 2016. Or he could opt out of the final year and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. Denver Post

Veteran point guard Nate Robinson is in the final year of a two-year contract worth $4.1 million. Robinson was a huge spark off the bench for the Nuggets last season, averaging 10.4 points and shooting 42 percent before suffering a torn ACL in January. Asked if he'd like to come back to the Nuggets after this season, he said, "I believe so. I'm too old to be moving around too much more. I don't know if I have too many more years doing that. For me, I would love to stay here. I've taken a liking to Denver; it's been fun. The city is great, the fans are great and this team is awesome. I would love to be here if they would love to have me." Denver Post
