To most February 14, 2009 was just another Valentine’s Day.
For former Knicks point guard Nate Robinson and all of the New York faithful, it’s an epic night of basketball history. On that night, the 5-foot-9 sensation won his second of three Slam Dunk Contests when he jumped over the 6-foot-11 Dwight Howard and dunked the ball.
Robinson, who recently partnered with Playmaker while battling kidney disease, recently spoke with ESNY and discussed the viral dunk. After their shared agent got them in touch, the man who’d later be called “KryptoNate” knew exactly what he wanted to do.
