Arenas appeared on Club Shay Shay to share his views on the matter. For him, losing to Paul was a trivial matter compared to the lambasting he received from his peers. “I know because of the Currys and LeBrons, everyone laughing—that probably hurt his soul. I think that hurt more than the actual fight, losing to a YouTuber. But it’s your peers, letting them down. As a big bro to him, the letdown is if you don’t get back in that ring.”

A Saturday night at Staples Center resulted in YouTube star Jake Paul standing in the corner, former NBA dunk champion Nate Robinson out cold on the floor and millions of pay-per-viewers wondering what on God’s green earth they had just watched. Officially, the boxing match ended midway through the second round as a Paul KO, but calling it a boxing match might be generous. It did end with a punch, but what came before was a preposterous rinse-and-repeat of Robinson charging his opponent, taking a counterpunch or two, then clinching until any more action was impossible. Robinson became an NBA fan favorite through his lack of height in a league of giants, but in this sport, he was unable to find a distance where he could evenly trade blows with the 6-foot-1 Paul.
Eric Woodyard: Nate Robinson’s trainer, Francisco “Paco” Reyes, tells ESPN that “he’s good.” Another source says he walked back to the back room on his own and is fine.
Nate Robinson: Thank you everyone for all of the well wishes, I’m OK. I appreciate @triller for the opportunity as well as everyone that has backed me during the fight. To my coaches, trainers, fans, and teammates, I appreciate all of the time and support you guys put in with me…it wasn’t the outcome that we wanted, but I’m thankful for the opportunity to fight on the biggest stage that there has been. #holdat
According to ESPN, the 23-year-old Paul landed three of his eight punches, but all of those led to knockdowns. One boxing legend who was analyzing the fight was not impressed with Robinson’s foray into a new sport. “You don’t play boxing,” analyst Sugar Ray Leonard said.
Paul, who said after the fight he’s concentrating on his musical career for now, still is planning to box again — and he even called out UFC star Conor McGregor. “Being one of the most hated people in the world, I have to fight through that,” Paul said after the fight. “It’s not easy. So for me, this is my perfect sport. I found my lane.”

Mirjam Swanson: Clippers will be without Kawhi tomorrow in Indy, he’s OUT with a sore right foot. Serge (back) and Pat Bev (hand) also are out, of course. Everyone else is available.
The scene was quite familiar to fans who have watched the Bucks’ starters celebrate their teammates’ success at the end of blowout victories in the last two seasons with one notable exception: Antetokounmpo was not wearing a jersey. Instead, Antetokounmpo was wearing a black Bucks hooded sweatshirt and a pair of black joggers as he watched from the sidelines as he missed his fifth consecutive game because of left knee soreness.
“We were talking about it before the game,” Middleton said after putting up 21 points, eight rebounds and five assists in Sunday’s win. “He said he hasn’t missed this many games in a row in his career. He’s itching to get back out, so hopefully he’ll be back out there soon.”
Following shootaround before the Pacers game, The Athletic asked Connaughton about Antetokounmpo’s impressive ability to stay healthy throughout his career and why he has always been able to return to the floor quickly after an injury. “Work ethic,” Connaughton said. “I feel like the misnomer is when you get injured, you need rest, like your body will heal itself and what I’ve seen since I’ve been in the NBA is that is actually the opposite.”
