Nate Robinson is an integral part of Chicago Bulls family. His energy, passion and scoring prowess have contributed heavily to the success of this team. Robinson a seven year veteran has always showed flashes of genius, but it wasn't until this year with the bulls that he really seemed to come into his own.
If you're a Bulls fan, I'd bet there has been at least one time this season you've watched with anxiety as the Bulls needed a basket to keep hope alive. I'd also bet that at least once you've stood up with excitement and relief, raising your hands in the air and screamed "NATE THE GREAT!!!"
I applaud John Paxson and Gar Forman for putting together a very competitive team. Now I think they owe it to Bulls fans to keep this team together and let them compete 100% healthy for a title. Too many times we've watched our players walk away and become allstars and fan favorites on other teams. (ex: Tyson Chandler, Elton Brand and Andres Nocioni) Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver haven't been the same since they left the city they loved. In all of these cases the determining factor was cap space / money. Jerry Reinsdorf - We understand that we have always been second fiddle to your beloved White Sox, but not this time. For years we've soldout the United Center and cheered on our team knowing that there was a loss on the other side of those 48 minutes. We've done this because we believe in our team. We love the culture. We love this city. Basketball in Chicago is more than just a hobby. It's a way of life for youth who don't have many things to look forward to. Our city has grown to love Nate Robinson.
With D.Rose sideline for the season many people wondered who would step up in his absence. How are they going to compete? The answer: They came together as a unit and where talent didn't exist hardwork did.
Nate Robinson, has found a home with this Chicago Bulls team. On behalf of all Bulls fans, Nate - we appreciate everything you've done to help this team win. With your passion, grit and energy on our side we believe the championship will come back to Chicago. Where it belongs.
