Former Knicks guard Nate Robinson on battle with kidney failure, NBA days, more | Q&A

It’s easy to forget how eventful a career Nate Robinson had in his 11 NBA seasons.

He fought through early drama to not only carve out a role with the Knicks, but continually improve in it. His seemingly small 5-foot-9 stature was anything but and he has three Slam Dunk Contest trophies to prove it. Not to mention that on top of being a talented basketball player, Robinson also played a season of college football at Washington.

Now Robinson, 38, is on a different path. He recently revealed that he’s battling kidney failure. Ever the fighter, he’s partnered with media company Playmaker to tell the same story he’s told his whole career: Nothing can stop him.
