From Newsday's Alan Hahn:
Apparently Olympiakos is targeting Nate Robinson with a boatload of cash (use your Google translator to read it). As they did a season ago with Josh Childress, the Greek team is hoping to sign Robinson as another ticket-seller, who would easily be a bigger star there.
Apparently they don't get the MSG Network in Greece.
Nate Robinson will sell a few seats, but the heads will turn their attention to the much more entertaining Homer once they realize the team stinks. There's something about Nate that's so attractive, but he doesn't play a team game. When's the last time someone like that, who was the leading scorer on a team, won an NBA title? I'm waiting...
Fortunately for 5'9" Robinson, I won't tell the boys in Europe about his eventual shortcomings. Good luck and God speed, pal! Get that money!
