We bring you the second edition of State of Nate, the video that follows Nate Robinson around.
Like to a pro-am game where the Thunder guard plays four quarters, drops a lot of buckets (his missess somehow got edited out, I guess) and then bails as the game heads to overtime to watch his son play football. The best part of the video is Robinson’s reaction to his boy’s first play from scrimage. I only wish Big Baby was there for him to jump on. (Pete Carroll probably saw the play and offered Nate’s son a tryout.)
Between Hezonja, Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo and Aaron Gordon, the Magic have a nucleus of young players that has the potential to be a lot of fun. Even if they’re still a few years away from contending, they’re definitely going to be a League Pass favorite this year.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffers dislocated shoulder in preseason game
Preseason is only just getting underway and there’s already a potentially serious injury to report. In the game between the Hornets and Magic on Saturday night, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was taken to the locker room after suffering a right shoulder injury. The Hornets announced that he was then taken to an Orlando-area hospital for follow-up x-rays:
