Nate Robinson Pulls “I’m A Celebrity” Card, Fails
Come on, fam:
The 25-year-old restricted free agent apparently was a complete jerk to the cop who pulled him over for driving with an unfastened seat belt, according to the New York Post. The word is that he turned up the volume pretty loud when the cop walked back from Robinson’s SUV to the police cruiser to check his license and then kept singing the words to the rap song when the officer returned to the window.
But as soon as he heard he was being arrested, Robinson apparently pulled out the I’m A Celebrity card and tried to sway the officer to let him go. No dice, Mr. Robinson. Looks like you headed into the wrong neighborhood this time around.
Um, if the ‘celebrity’ card didn’t even work for Charles Barkley, why would it work for you?! Sometimes I wonder who these athletes think they are. Nate is my dude, but lets call a spade a spade: He was Chris Duhon’s backup… backup! Why would the arresting officer care about his ‘celebrity’ card when he took a backseat to one of the worst PG’s in the league last year?
And did he have to act like a straight douche? At least Sir Charles had a noble excuse. A follow-up appointment for the best top you’ve ever received isjustifiable in my book, but that’s neither here nor there. He also offered to get the cop’s name tattooed on his person! And NONE of that got him out of the DUI!
Nate, bring it down a notch, my dude. This can’t be good for the on-going negotiations to keep you in a Knicks uniform. This off-season, the team has gone out of there way to pursue every single washed-up PG in the league. And Grant Hill. So, if that’s any indication of the confidence they have in you, you were in trouble to begin with.
Speaking of which, what’s good with Ramon Sessions?
