Watching these scrimmages... Bulls are missing out big time with player development.

We better get an NBA sanctioned training camp for our guys to play together.

Robinson's literally probably 2-3x as strong as Paul. Robinson was known as one of the strongest players in the NBA and a quick google rumor has it that he used to bench 500lbs. I doubt Paul could even hurt Robinson with body punches and would need to hit him with clean shots to the face to do any damage at all. Any even exchange of blows and Paul is toast, if Paul gets caught on the ropes, he's toast. The only way he wins is if Robinson just never gets a clean punch in. I don't have any reason to think Paul's that technically strong a boxer.

I don’t think Nate Robinson is benching 500lbs. That’s nearly impossible espeacially for someone 5’7 180lbs.

5'7"? i think you're thinking of kevin hart

anyway, whether nate is 5'9" as listed or not, he ain't benching anywhere close to triple his body weight. he'd have to be made of titanium

the air force has an annual weightlifting competition where the winner is the person who lifts the highest percentage of his body weight (bench + dead lift combined). in 2014, the winner was a 138 pound guy who benched 235. 2nd place was a 197 pounder who benched 300

I was saying they should run a tourney for the 8 teams who didn’t make it to ORL. It would’ve been fun, productive for development, and nice R&D for the NBA with the elimination game format and a trial for the mid-season tournament.

Not into a “training” bubble with no games.

Damn, I completely forgot Andre Roberson was on their roster still. Nice to see him make a comeback after such a long time.

Don't know much about Paul, he looks like he's in very good shape in the photo they have up, but Robinson looks like he would have an absolutely massive strength advantage. Robinson is absolutely jacked. Granted, in a boxing match, I'd imagine that skill in boxing would be pretty overwhelming at this level where neither guy is likely all that technical compared to real boxers.


Not to mention Nate is a world class athlete. Gimme Nate all day every day.

Jake Paul looks to have to much height. 6’1 vs 5’8 seems like a mismatch.



Tyson was almost always the shorter boxer. I hear what you are saying but size means nothing unless they are dead evenly matched. Skill is way more important than size (ie if I am taller than Nate I still would never be in the nba or a dunk champion). Also if Nate has that Mickey Ward jab uppercut being shorter with strong shoulders that plays in perfectly. Now I know nothing about either fighter, if either of them has been training like a pro, I am taking that one. Nate has freak athlete and has been at a pro level in a sport so that is something but Jake Paul might have been training at a pro level for years and if that is the case he will make short work of Nate.

Just thought this was random:


Whoa. That is random as hell.

Nate Robinson needs to stop before he embarrass himself. He’s going to get knocked out. He’s like 5’8 and Jake Paul is 6’1 extreme height advantage.


Nate also played football, football players tend to transition well in MMA and boxing.

Finally watched the Last Dance now that it hit Netflix.

And I want to know where was all the unseen footage they promised??

They said they had 500 hours of unseen footage.....and we got maybe 3 minutes each minutes each episode. Which equals to about 30 minutes total of unseen footage LOL

What a joke.

if one boxer is significantly taller he's basically reduced to playing whack-a-mole
