2005 NBA Re-Draft: Injuries Shake-Up The Order Considerably

14. Nate Robinson – Minnesota Timberwolves



Original Spot For Robinson: 21st Overall (Phoenix Suns)
Original 14th Pick: Rashad McCants

Robinson is one of the most fascinating players the league has ever seen. Listed (generously) at 5’9″, the Seattle native was an explosive athlete — as evidenced by the fact he’s the only three-time Slam Dunk Contest winner in the history of the league. While Robinson was never a consistent starter, there was a stretch in which he was widely considered one of the NBA’s top bench players. With the Knicks in 2008, he averaged a career-high 17.2 PPG. Robinson averaged over 10.0 PPG in seven seasons. During his short stint with the Bulls, Robinson truly captivated the city of Chicago with his ability to score from anywhere on the floor. He scored 25 points and registered nine assists in a playoff victory over LeBron James and the Miami Heat. In doing so, he joined Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Derrick Rose as the only Bulls to ever accomplish the feat.
