Well, not exactly the Energizer Bunny but the Bulls feel that Nate Robinson is going to be their version of the famous bunny that keeps going and going and going. Any Celtics fan who remembers the Shrek and Donkey game with Nate and Big Baby, can see the resemblance. Former Celtics assistant, Tom Thibodeau, has had a thing for bringing in former Celtics. First it was fan favorite, Brian Scalabrine and now, another fan favorite, Nate Robinson. For his part, Nate is very excited to be joining the Bulls.
"It's a blessing and I'm honored," Robinson told the media gathered at the Berto Center. "Great legacy, great tradition, a lot of history, and of course, my favorite player has a statue right outside. It's a great privilege."
"There were a lot of other teams," Robinson continued, "but you really can't pass on an opportunity like this to play for the Bulls, who are like America's team, Chicago is a great city."
Hmmmm America's team? I somehow doubt that. It seems like I remember him saying the same things about Boston. Maybe he'll have a Shrek and Donkey moment with Joakim Noah. On second thought, maybe not.

Nate was a good Celtic. Ended up doing better than I might have predicted. Too bad that 2011 season didn't work out.
