Sports Card Trifecta #14: Nate Robinson

The Black Mamba won it once.

Air Jordan did it twice.

But... Nate Robinson has won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest a record three times.

I'll be honest... I've lost interest in the dunk contest over the years. These days... I'll wait until the next day and watch the highlights online.

That doesn't change the fact that I'm a huge fan of KryptoNate. There's just too many similarities between the two of us... to not like him:

A. I live in the Bay Area and he's a Golden State Warrior.

B. I played one season of organized basketball and was a PG. Nate's a point guard.

C. I'm short and he's currently the shortest player in the NBA.

It's eerie right? Like we were separated at birth or something. Anyways... here's a look at the first Sports Card Trifecta I've built in over seven months:

Rookie Card: 2005-06 Topps Chrome #193

Autographed Card: 2006-07 Sweet Shot "Signature Shots Leather" #NR

Memorabilia Card: 2007-08 Artifacts "Divisional Artifacts" #DANR

Okay... that's all I have left in the tank. It's been a long week and it's time for bed. Have a great weekend everyone... and sayonara!


  1. Like Nate, have you also had the privilege of sporting Dallas Cowboy cheerleader babes on each arm? :)

  2. the chop keeper - my best friend in high school dated a cheerleader, is that close?

  3. I still remember Nate's days at the UW. He is still loved here even if he doesn't get to come to town without the Sonics around anymore. I think it was cool that he contemplated wearing #41 to honor the Sonics 41 years in Seattle when he played for that stolen team in Oklahoma.

  4. mariner1 - wow that would have been cool had he chosen to do that. either way, i'm glad he found a home here in the bay area.
