    Nate Robinsons disappearing act

    Nate, what the heck has happened to you?

    His minutes have been falling, even after Rondos return.. his shot has vanished, his entire game diminished.  This has been going on for too long now.

    Last night vs Bulls...Nates line is 10 min, 0-2 FG, zero points, zero rebounds, zero assists, 1 turnover, 2 personal fouls and got abused covering Rose..as did Rondo

    THis is not the same Nate Robinson we saw in the playoffs... THis is not the same Nate hes been his entire career shooting the ball.

    The only thing I can thing of is DOc using him so much this season as a PG has melted down his game. Hes trying to do waht a PG is supposed to do... and with that comes alot of leadership and management of the team...  that extra responsibility has apparently over loaded him. 

    He still hustles but aside from that, his game has gone poof!!

    Hoping DWests return gets the old Nate back...

    Re: Nate Robinsons disappearing act

    We have to learn not to get too excited about the games where our players are having great games and doing well........and likewise not get too worried when they are having bad games and doing poorly.  Over the long haul, we just have to believe that all of this will balance itself out and if it doesn't, Danny will make a move to improve the team.

    I think Nate's troubles are temporary, as was BBD's poor shooting on the second night of a back to back when he was a starter and playing starter minutes against another team's starter.  Nate can't play Rose.  BBD can't play Boozer for any extended period.  

    I believe that's all it is......let's hope I'm right!

    Nates shooting problems have been most all season long. HEs a few good games here and there but in general, his shot has been awful. I wish it was just the Bulls game'

    Re: Nate Robinsons disappearing act

    I think you'd be surprised at Nate's actual stats.  I just looked them up:

    On the Road, shooting percentage is 46%;  at home its 41% (18 games each)

    As a starter, he shot 47%;   as a sub, he's shot 40% (25 games as a sub)

    In games we won; Nate shot 46%; In games we lost he shot 35%.

    3 point shooting:  October.... 1 for 9 or 11%; Nov. 4 for 18 or 44%; 23 for 62 or 37%; Jan. 10 for 25 or 40%.

    My point is he's all over the place.   I don't think its been all season.  He's off and on.  I was very surprised he shot better as a starter than as a sub!  He's also shot well in our wins.   Seems he's right there with the rest of the team....in losses - he's like BBD and Shaq and others.....not coming through.

    Re: Nate Robinsons disappearing act

    Tom Heinsohn addressed this a week or two ago by pointing out Nate in the spirit of team first was looking for other players to pass to.  When his role is to come and get shots primarily.  When he was subbing for Rondo it made sense for him to pass like a regular point guard now, on the second unit Nate however should come in and try to score and break down the opposition that way.  He needs to be more selfish as he was on the Knicks .  I think he will be eventually but his shooting has been terrible which I believe is due to not being aggressive with his own offense.

    Nov. 4 for 18  isnt 44%, its 22%.

    Nate has the 3rd lowest FG% on the Celtics, only Wafer & AB are lower.. this from a guy who's "specialty & greatest value" is shooting. Whats as disturbing is Nate has missed a tremendous amount of wide open, uncontested jumpers.
     
    Stats dont always tell the story... for example, one hot game can offset 3 poor ones and getting alot of layups can pad a players FG%, just look at Rondo.

    Nates definitely struggling with his jumper and has been most of the season.

    The Celtics have a month and a half to decide whether Nate is worth keeping or not.

    Nate will be ok once Delonte comes back.  I think having him run the pg position is not his game, and forces Pierce to bring up the ball to often, which slows down the Celts' offense.

    NATE WILL BE FINE... just what he has always been. thats y he is coming off the bench. unless his shot is falling, he has no value. once cold, doc can go away from him for he seldom reheats. nate can go 3 or 4 hot games but lose it for 4-5 games too. he is what he is. still valuable if you grasp his limitations and history. he will reheat soon as always!

    Hopefully West will be back soon to relieve Nate and he can get back to his natural position.

    I wouldn't count on West too much.  He seems to be injury prone.  I still would prefer a good PG to back up RR.  I know they are hard to come by.  Its just that we have needed one for 3 years and still don't have one. I don't consider West a PG although he can do it sometimes.

    I love DWest's game but he is also prone to manic episodes, Carrying guns on motorcycles and banging Lebrons Mom.  The reason he is playing for the vets minimum this year is because no one was sure they could count on him.

    Re: Nate Robinsons disappearing act

    Look at the Facts.  Nate has disappeared in January.

    This month he is shooting 34% FG  --  26% "3" 's  --  1.3 Assists  --  5.2 Pts..

    Biggest mistake ever was trying to make Nate the back-up PG.  He lost all confidence and screwed up his head and shooting judgement.

    Hope when Delonte gets back that Nate will only be shooter off the bench.  Better for him and better for the team.
