Nate Robinson Nuggets: Chicago Bulls Will Regret Letting Him Go

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 07/22/13 11:17PM EDT

Nate Robinson officially left the Chicago Bulls on Monday when he agreed to a two-year deal worth $4 million with the Denver Nuggets. Although he is very short in stature at 5-foot-9, Robinson averaged 16.3 points per playoff game for the Bulls last season. He averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists through 82 regular season games.

"Chicago will always have a place in my heart," Robinson tweeted. "I'll miss all my teammates. It was a treat playing alongside all of them stand up guys."

"I know the nba is a business but when you build friendships with guys on the team, it's hard to say goodbye. Thanks again Chi-Town."

We believe the Chicago Bulls will miss the 29-year-old Robinson a lot during the upcoming NBA season. When Derrick Rose refused to return to the team, it was Robinson who led them to several victories.

Not too long ago, Robinson spoke out about the frustration of not being signed.

"It's frustrating because you put in your hard work. I worked my butt off year in and year out, ever since I was a little boy, to get to this point now, not to be signed. But at the same time, I'm not going to let that discourage me of being who I am, just working hard. I want people to understand and know Nate Robinson is that player who's going to play his heart out, no matter what, good or bad. "

Anybody who questions how hard Robinson plays has probably never seen him play. If Robinson was eight inches taller, he would easily be one of the best players in the NBA. Unfortunately, his height makes a lot of teams uninterested in him.

Of course his height does give him limitations as a player, but that doesn't stop him from being a game changer. The Bulls should have held on to him. But the Nuggets are certainly getting one heck of a player.
