At the end of the day, the reality is hard to evade - there simply aren't enough quality minutes to go around in order for Robinson to make an honest contribution to the team's effort. He has tried to do his best in a limited role, cheered his team on, and even celebrated when fans hit big money shots during time outs. Unfortunately for Nate, the Thunder are loaded at every position and he was all to often the odd man out.

In a different situation and on a different team, Robinson can still have an impact. Hopefully in the flurry of this free agency season Robinson will find a home.
