Follow Up – Nate Robinson

Stephon Marbury flew home to New York from Phoenix. We all heard Isiah talk about how he demanded more from his veteran players (Starbury, Curry and Crawford) in the areas of leadership, defense and heart, but we won’t discuss that today. We’ll have to wait and see how this thing plays out, but you gotta love the constant drama with the Knicks…unless you’re a Knicks fan. Instead, let’s take a quick look at what Nate Robinson did tonight, since I told you to pick him up.

Mardy Collins got the start, but he hurt his foot 6 minutes into the game, so Nate came in. Nate did a respectable job, as expected. He scored 18 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal while shooting 47% (2 of 6 from three)in 26 minutes. That’s not a bad stat line, and it’s about what your gonna get from him as long as he plays 25 – 30 minutes per night. His size is an obvious weakness on defense, so it will be interesting to see how Isiah tries to compensate (you can only play so much zone). Jamal Crawford actually played a lot of point, but you wouldn’t guess by his box score. He only had 4 assists when he’s been averaging 6 per game this season. Again, pick up Nate, if he’s still available, but things could change quickly, as the Knicks are a constant rollercoaster.  At the very least, we are looking at a time-share with Mardy and Nate, but even with that Nate is explosive enough to give you some good games on the night you actually play him.
