Not the only one to be dunked on by Nate

Two summers ago I got to play with Jamal Crawford in an outdoor basketball tournament at Green Lake. Our honorary coach happened to be Brandon Roy. He was going to be a senior at the University of Washington and could not play in summer leagues. One of our first games was against Nate Robinson. At the time he had just graduated from the University of Washington. Unfortunately, this was the first time I had seen him play. Near the end of the game, the score was really close and Nate had a fast break. Of course I couldn’t give him an easy layup, so I went up to challenge the shot. I am 6′ 6″ and Nate is listed at 5′ 9″, but in real life he is shorter than my wife, who is only 5′ 5″. Before I could realize what had happened, HE DUNKED ON ME! He didn’t jump over me like it did Spud, but he managed to avoid my outstretched arms and get the dunk to go in.
