There may still be three months to go before the start of the 2013/14 NBA season, but Nate Robinson is still very disappointed not to have found himself a new franchise yet.
The guard left the Chicago Bulls at the end of last season, having only spent one year in the windy city. Talking to NBA TV during their coverage of the Las Vegas Summer League, Robinson voiced his disgruntlement: “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 the 5”9 guard was quick to reassure his fans that he’ll persist to find a team: “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.”
At 29 years of age, Robinson certainly has a lot of experience to offer to potential suitors. And he was in fine form just last season, scoring 34 points in a play-off game against the Brooklyn Nets.
Three weeks have now passed since the free agent window opened, and few people would have predicted that Robinson would have gone unpicked for so long.
However, he is ultimately trying to be optimistic about the situation: “God will put me on that team that will deserve me and that’s how I’m looking at it.”
