Speaking of the Knicks, after two decades of NBA poverty, New York is finally out of the gutter and approaching the top of the NBA mountain. As a former Knick during the 2000s, Nate Robinson had a front-row seat to the eternal chaos of the franchise during their darkest hours. Specifically the 2005-2006 season, when Larry Brown was hired and subsequently fired as the head coach. Brown and Nate feuded during his short-lived tenure, with Nate later revealing Brown called him “the little sh-t” on a daily basis. On another occasion, Robinson came into Brown’s office, crying, telling his coach to stop demeaning him. Ten minutes later, in front of the team, Brown called Robinson “the little sh-t” again and shared that he had cried. There is no better player to peel back the layers of poverty in the darkest era of Knicks basketball than Nate. To appreciate the present, you have to understand the past.
