Either Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson and New York Knicks forward Steve Novak genuinely dislike each other, or they enjoy using the media to flirt with one another. Over the weekend, Robinson mocked Novak’s three-point celebration a couple times during the Bulls’ win over the Knicks. Novak was asked about it after the game, and he called Robinson “Little Nathan” and said he hopes the 5-foot-9 guard achieves his goal of one day being just like Novak when he grows up.
Robinson responded to the “Little Nathan” comment on Twitter, but it would appear that he is not satisfied with the war of words ending there. Just before leaving an interview with NBA TV on Monday night following Chicago’s win over the Atlanta Hawks, Robinson gave Novak a shout-out.
“Shout-out to my favorite player in the whole wide world, Steve Novak,” Robinson said just before removing his headset.
It’s all in good fun, but it seemed like Robinson was disappointed he was not asked about the feud. The world may have already gotten over it, but he’s not ready to let it go just yet.
