Nate Robinson makes dunking look easy… and he’s 5’9″

Aug 30, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

Just a reminder, Nate Robinson is 5’9″.

I know he has won dunk contests and is a fan favorite because he is a fearless risk taker (which is why he drives coaches to drink), but just step back for a second and check out the athleticism. He makes dunking the ball look easy, like anyone at home could do it, all you need is that little drop step move. Why don’t you just go out and try that… and not on the 8-foot rim at the local elementary school. Try it on the big boy basket.

Denver fans are going to enjoy him this year.

    It would be more impressive if he was 5’9″ and white. Well wouldn’t it?

      No, it wouldn’t. I don’t know very many black 5’9″ dudes that can dunk a basketball.

      Right wingNUT much?

    Freakish athletic ability. Lil. Nate probably could’ve been an NFL DB or slot receiver.

      He was a DB in college

        RB too right?

    Nate’s leaping ability is unparalleled. David Thompson was like that, only he was well over 6 foot. Nate is definitely one of a kind. It would be more impressive if he was white if only to racist scum.

    this dude has sick ups, and a ton of heart.

    When I saw Roy Hibert wearing google glass, the first thing in my mind was I want to watch Nate wearing it.

    Freakin amazing. Even though I doubt he ever worked on his vertical.

    One dribble under the rim dunk with 2 hands is so ridiculously hard at 5’9. Wow

    White people don’t have enough heart to do things like Nate, that’s why they don’t have any white 5’9 dunkers around.

    I’m jealous. I’m 6’1″ and during my playing days, I could barely touch the rim. And for the person who posted that “if he were white,” I’m black.
