Nate Robinson Pulls off the Rare Under-the-Defender's-Legs Dribble Drive

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 27, 2016

Nate Robinson found that he couldn't go around Sebastian Telfair, nor could he go over Sebastian Telfair, so he decided to go under him. 

A tip of the hat to Trey Kerby of The Basketball Jones who spotted this brilliant moment from Wednesday night's game between the Chicago Bulls and the Phoenix Suns, a game the visiting Bulls would take, 112-106. 

The play comes in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter when the ball finds the diminutive Bulls guard on the wing. That's when he puts the Suns' Sebastian Telfair into the popcorn machine. In fact, Orville Redenbacher thought that was ridiculous. 

With quick thinking, Robinson remembered one of his many strengths as a basketball player. He is damn tiny. 

Instead of messing around with some flashy move, he just goes underneath his high-flying opponent for a sick maneuver that looks hilarious, no matter how many times you watch it. 

Seriously, I am wearing out the replay button over here. 

Robinson finished with 11 points and the Play of the Night. Telfair is still asking pals where that Robinson guy went and if anyone has seen him.
