Nate Robinson ‘Feels Wanted’ in Boston

by June 07, 2010

There’s no telling if the Celtics will re-sign Lil’ Nate following the season, but after the way he’s played in these Playoffs, it’s something worthy of serious consideration. FanHouse reports: “Robinson, who will be an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his five-year career, said he definitely has interest in re-signing with the Celtics  if they want him back. ‘Of course,’ Robinson said. Even though the 5-foot-9 Robinson’s playing time has been erratic, he said he likes the way the Celtics have treated him since he was acquired Feb. 19 from New York. ‘I feel wanted here,’ said Robinson, who averaged 6.5 points in 14.7 minutes in 26 Boston regular-season games, but has seen his numbers drop in the postseason to 3.4 points in 6.4 minutes in the 11 games he has played. ‘This group of guys, this team, this organization is good for me. They’re high class, man. They keep it 100 percent (real) with you. Doc (Rivers, the coach) keeps it 100 percent. He tells you straight forward what he wants. I like that.”’
