Nate Robinson crosses up Kris Humphries. Wickedly. (VIDEO)

May 3, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

Kris Humphries had to know he was in trouble when getting back in transition he did the right thing — stop the ball — but that meant he had to cover Nate Robinson on the perimeter.

But Nate crossed Humphries up something serious with a little hesitation crossover. That is wicked. Especially considering Nate had the flu and was throwing up during timeouts.

The Bulls, however, didn’t have enough of these moments and fell at home to the Nets, forcing a Game 7 in Brooklyn on Saturday. Winner of that gets sacrificed to the Heat.

    It kinda looks like he picked up his dribble but there isn’t a good camera angle to tell. Nate’s got mad handles so I wouldn’t be surprised if he just pulled his other hand close to the ball without touching it.

      he absolutely double-dribbles, really visible at 00:16

      that said, he smokes humph-dogg so bad, i think the refs just gave it to him.

        Wrong. That is a common play ground move. You hesitate and bring your off hand to the ball as if to shoot but without actually putting your hand on the ball.

        It sure was a double dribble

        @circuscivics you’re an idiot.

        In the National Basketball Association, a dribble is movement of the ball, caused by a player in control, who throws or taps the ball into the air or to the floor.
        The dribble ends when the player:
        1) Touches the ball simultaneously with both hands
        2) Permits the ball to come to rest while they are in control of it
        3) Touches the ball more than once while dribbling, before it touches the floor.\

        He CLEARLY touches the ball with both hands. The title of the post is atrocious and misleading. It’s a clear violation.

        The move Nate put on Humphries is called ” Hands up ” or just ” the hands “. Depends on where you live. & BTW… It’s NOT a carry and it was NASTY!!!!

        If you LOOK closely. You’ll see he pulls his other hand away from the ball. If anything, it’s closer to a carry, then it is a double dribble. Just Saying!!!

      who cares, didn’t Nates team lose?

    They showed the replay 4 times and if the refs won’t call palming or double dribble it’s a great move.

      You seem bitter. Are you THAT mad that iowa has no pro sports teams?

      • iowahbr - May 3, 2013 at 1:45 PM

        not really as I couldn’t afford the tix in the first place.

    “Winner gets sacrificed to the Heat”. So funny yet so true.

    • gmsingh - May 3, 2013 at 2:29 PM

      It’s totally true, but Kurt out of anybody knows the fix is in.

    I applaud Humphries for giving it his all in a no-win situation, like Brandon Knight trying to stop DeAndre Jordan’s throw down. They know they’ll likely look stupid and have little chance of success, but they still tried to give their teams that little chance.

    In the words of the CSN commentators… PANTS DOWN! PANTS DOWN!

  7. tmatic74 - May 3, 2013 at 5:31 PM

    Blow the whistle!!!!

    Man, making fun of Kris Humphries isn’t even fun anymore. It’s too easy
