Nate Robinson with the monster rejection on MarShon Brooks (VIDEO)

Dec 16, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

You never know what you’re going to get from Nate Robinson from a pure basketball perspective on a night-to-night basis, but his athleticism is something that always remains a constant.

Robinson hustles back on defense in time to elevate and get just a monster rejection of this shot attempt from MarShon Brooks, who likely had no idea Robinson was anywhere in the vicinity.

There are a couple other nice highlights from Robinson in this clip, the final one being the most impressive. The ball fake, spin, and then the leap to get the shot up and in over the defender is just a sampling of what Robinson can provide, even if you can never be too sure of when it’s coming.

Robinson finished with six points on 3-of-8 shooting, with five assists in 28 minutes of action as the Bulls won a low-scoring affair over the Nets on Saturday.

    Nate’s right hand does manage to grab Brook’s left wrist during the block, a foul that in the heat of the moment almost 0% of NBA refs would’ve blown the whistle on.

    The best was when he blocked Yao Ming back in the day. Nate’s got some crazy hops.
