11:10 AM ET 05.19 | During the NBA playoffs, Nate Robinson took his game to new heights -- from his heroics in a historic triple-overtime win over Brooklyn and vomiting on the sideline while playing with the flu, to his clutch performance in the Bulls' Game 1 win over the Heat and getting his own postseason "BIG" commercial -- and cemented his status as much more than a novelty act. In the wake of the Bulls' Eastern Conference semifinals loss in Miami, Robinson's tireless approach to the game was evident: "I'm not tired at all, but I wish we could have had another game. It sucks, but it's basketball. Go back to the summer and prepare yourself for next season." However, with Rose's expected return next season, Hinrich having another deal on his contract and rookie point guard Marquis Teague needing at least the opportunity to develop in game situations, it's unlikely that next season will be in Chicago for the instant-offense scorer and fan favorite.

He's going to find a job as a 6th man somewhere...

Don't need him when there's Rose, Teague, and Hinrich on the payroll.

Hawks should sign him as a 6th man since Lou is out half the season.

Lakers could use instant offense coming off the bench and reunite Super Dwight and the Little Lantern in purple and gold.

I was thinking the same thing. Plus he should come cheap, he only got the vets minimum with the Bulls.

He'd be an upgrade over Jameer Nelson!

Nate is a scoring point guard and will find a spot somewhere. If he is not hot then he is kind of useless. His historysays he can be a pain in the butt about his role and playing time but as a bench player, he is worth the risk. Miami locked him down and he was unable to create for the others. it is score or nothing.
