Nate the Great Torches Hawks For 41 Points

By Canbek Alakay

Talk about getting revenge. Knicks guard Nate Robinson featured in his first game in exactly a month when the Knicks traveled down to Atlanta to play a hot Hawks team last night. Reports suggested an internal rift between head coach Mike D'Antoni and Robinson, but D'Antoni quashed the rumors by stating that he believed rookie guard Toney Douglas gave the Knicks a better chance of winning.

He was right. The Knicks stood at 4-14 on December 1st, but kick started two winning streaks when they rattled off big wins against the Hawks, Magic and Trail Blazers. Without Robinson, the Knicks went 8-6. However, Robinson reminded D'Antoni that he was a true Knick in a New York minute, scoring 41 points off the bench in an overtime win over the Hawks (he also dished out 8 assists and grabbed 4 rebounds).

I love guys like Nate, the underdog type. You can say he's too small, but his agility is unmatched. Gerald Wallace had a great quote in an interview with ESPN where he said that size "don't stop nobody. Spud Webb and Muggsy Bogues played in this league forever. Size is something for a person to [complain about] when they don't feel like tryin'. It's an excuse."

Nate is the last player to make excuses, and that's why he should remain a key cog in the Knicks organization going forward. He's the perfect role player/sixth-man, coming in late in the first and second quarter when his matchup is tired and torching them for easy baskets, much like what he did last night.

At this point, nobody knows what's going to happen next summer. Will LeBron sign with the Knicks? Wade? Bosh? Right now, I hope Nate is among the big names who signs on to be a New York Knick.
