Nate Robinson Blames Technical Fouls On Refs' 'Hate' For Him 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Dec 1, 2013 6:35 pm

Nate Robinson picked up his second technical foul in as many games on Friday and smirked when asked about the situation, saying he believes the referees dislike him.


“They hate me, they hate me,” Robinson said. “I don’t know why, but it is what it is. I already know I’ve got the target on my back, but I’ll play through it; I don’t care. I really don’t. It doesn’t bother me none. If I get a call, I get a call. If I don’t, I don’t. If I get a tech, hopefully it’s not in the fourth quarter. Hopefully I don’t get any more. But I know I will. It’s nothing new for me.”


Brian Shaw said he will sit down with Robinson to discuss how to better control his emotions.


“He’s always wound up,” Shaw said, with a grin that quickly faded away. “That’s what you get with Nate Robinson. So we just have to continue to keep working on him on that. I told him, let me deal with the referees, you just play the game. But that’s easier said than done.”

I love Nate. He's always entertaining. I also think the refs do play favorites. That's the worst kept secret in the NBA.

That and Nate is far from the worst at controlling his emotions. He's far from the best too. But there are other players who go crazy.

What about Nate makes you think he thinks he's the next MJ?

Probably because like every basket he makes he acts like he just won the NBA title.

When you flop, dish out cheap shots, grab defensively because you're a poor defender, and talk nonstop, you do tend to get attention from referees.

After every basket he chirps the bench or the crowd or the refs, this leads me to believe he thinks he is amazing, otherwise why would he do this?

This^ Showboating for regular scoring doesn't engender much love.

I think that's less of an issue than the cheap shots/flops. If Nate were on your team for a year, you would know what I mean. He's like a baby Rodman out there.

Him trying to fight Shaq after Shaq caught him like a baby after a wild drive to the basket in which he got fouled basically sealed that I would never like Nate.
