The Thunder bought out guard Nate Robinson before the season mainly because they had two solid point guards already with a rookie waiting as a third guy. Robinson wanted playing time and he wasn't going to get it. So he found a home with the Warriors and has fit in well.

Saturday night against the Thunder, Robinson definitely made some noise against a former team. First, he hit a 50-foot halfcourt shot. Then, he basically completely destroyed the lower half of the rookie the Thunder wanted to play instead of him.

Robinson said he understood the Thunder's position and claimed there were no hard feelings about it, but his little staredown of the Thunder bench after the halfcourt shot might suggest differently. Or it was just Nate Robinson being Nate Robinson.

But then again, the Thunder won 120-109 and Robinson finished with nine points on nine shots, which included a wild airball in the fourth quarter. Robinson's a microwave that can warm up and pour in points in a hurry, but he's always been a player that possessed more style than actual subtance. Still, the style in these two cases were pretty stylish.

I'm a little dissapointed because Jackson clearly slipped on the wet court.

Nate Robinson did some things against old team

Hahaha.... Nate Robinson is the MAN!! Gotta love the little guy and he certainly does have style.  No1 was more deserving of a slam dunk title than him, when he came out with a kryptonite uniform and dunked over Dwight Howard.  This guy is capable of big things.  When he was with the knicks he had some huge games off the bench and he did even better as a starter.  I remember in his 1st 2 starts he had 30+ points each game and combined for 12, 3 pointers.  He can be instant offense and he is just plain fun to watch.  I really think the Celtics are kicking themselves for letting him go cuz Avery Bradley, is what we in Boston call, Hussshit aka horse $hit!! Anyway, those clips are a riot and who better to knock down a half court shot then some1 that can make the aftermath just as amusing.  Golden State is probably a good fit for him.  He is getting decent minutes and plenty of touches in a fast paced offense which he seems to thrive in!! They are a dangerous team and even more so with him running around the court.  No team is safe when Curry ,Ellis, Nasty Nate and Dorrell Wright are pouring in points.  Might not be contenders but can definitely spoil a teams trip out to the west coast!!
