Let’s start with a trivia question: How many people have played in both the NBA and NFL? The answer: zero.
Next question: Who in the NBA has the best chance of playing professional football? Your first thought is probably “LeBron James,” but what if we told you it might be Nate Robinson?
One of the smallest guys in the league, Robinson originally enrolled at the University of Washington on a football scholarship and starred as a freshman cornerback before electrifying UW on the basketball court and deciding to focus on hoops full-time.
At 31 years old, Nate’s legs are still fresh and he’s considering going all-in on football.
