Good for Nate that he won another Dunk title. I really didn't expect that, but apparently, no one else went out and took it. I'm not really a big fan of the dunk contest, but it's nice to see someone in a Knick uniform win something.
I wish we could win something other than the dunk contest. sigh.
Also, it was a little bittersweet because I have a feeling that if there is a trade at the deadline, either for McGrady and/or unloading Jeffries, Nate might be included. In any case, we may be seeing his last hurrah in a Knick uniform.
And really, I like Nate, he's a good player, but watching real games, I don't get the overwhelming feeling that he's really worth prioritizing. Honestly, when it comes to having a combo guard come off the bench, I think Toney Douglas might be a better option, just because of his defensive prowess. I don't think it makes much sense to keep Douglas and Nate - and Douglas is a better defender... and Nate is a better dunker and more colorful personality.
I'm just getting the feeling that the future here doesn't include Nate Robinson. I just don't think he's going to be an indispensable player in this league. And that's a bit sad because Nate's cool.
