Nate Robinson seems intent on pursuing his dream of making the NFL. He’s still playing basketball, for the time being over in Israel. He dropped 25 points in his debut with Hapoel Tel Aviv.
Suddenly an in-demand television guest, Robinson sat for an interview in a park — only to have it derailed by a confident shirtless man challenging him to a game of one-on-one.
The speculation on Reddit is that the trash-talking passerby is Raz Nissim Cohen, who has had a few cups of coffee with pro clubs in Israel. It’s difficult for me to confirm that because I’ve never seen Cohen with his shirt off.
Really impressive restraint by Robinson here to not drop everything and turn in a 11-1 beatdown on live television. Had to have been tempting.
