Nate Robinson loves locked out sports

Quite an offseason for former Celtics [1] guard Nate Robinson [2]. First, he was arrested for urinating on a bookstore [3] in a New York City suburb. Now, after joining hundreds of players in the unemployment line due to the NBA lockout, the former University of Washington two-sport athlete is hoping to spend his summer trying out for the NFL. Here’s what the 5-foot-9 Robinson  told SLAM Magazine:

“I might go play football. Do something that nobody’€™s tried to do.  If I can, I would love to play football a little bit. I’ve been doing a little bit of training. Why wouldn’t you want to have an NBA player that can play football try out? That’€™s a lot of publicity for your organization.”

There’s one little problem: The NFL is locked out, too. Kinda makes you realize why Robinson decided to pull up for 3-pointers when he was on a 1-on-4 fast break. It’s fairly safe to assume Nate Robinson is the best two-sport locked out athlete in history.
