TMoney, when you going to ask me out on that date you've been wanting to so badly? You just can't keep my name from running through your head.

I give Nate his props, I always have...always will. I never knock his talent, or his athleticism. He's just a mental midget...and a real midget at the same time.

Have we won without him? Yes.

Have we lost without him? Yes.

Are we better without him? Possibly.

It all depends on how you view your talent and how in you view what wins basketball games. I chose substance over style. Sue me. It seems like most like to rip on me for ripping on Nate, when I'm simply looking out for my teams best interest. Many seem to enjoy rooting for player names on the back of jerseys, and not the team names the represent on the front of them.

Now to tonights game...here's my post from the Nate thread on the big board (don't feel like typing anymore)
Big ups to Nate, throughout the entire ordeal he's pretty much taken this in stride. He's thanked D'Antoni as well as Malik Rose, Houston and his teammates for helping him through this humbling experience (and his xbox live connect).

Tonight was a case of "Manny being Manny" in the form of Nate Robinson. He is what he is. What he has got to realize, is that he needs to remain focused and perform within the constraints of the team. Granted down the stretch he looked off EVERYBODY, but it was rightfully so. He was unstoppable.

Kid's got all the talent from the neck down, its whats above the shoulders that is the issue. I really hope this has grounded him and he can help be that spark off the bench down the stretch if need be.

Again, kudos to Nate...I just hope this doesn't go to your head.

After being benched for one month, Nate Robinson had his number called on Friday night and responded with 41 points in a Knicks 112-108 overtime victory against Atlanta.

Nate was surprised when Coach D'Antoni entered him into the game late into the first quarter.

"I got nervous," Robinson said. "I don't know. I felt kind of sick. I was just real, real nervous. I was just going to do everything [D'Antoni] asked me to do.

Robinson made 18 of 24 shots from the field and came within four points of his career high. He had 11 of New York's 13 overtime points and dished out eight a.ssists.

"Against a great team, Nate single-handedly carries us," said teammate David Lee. "It was unreal to watch him play tonight."

The Knicks win was their second at Philips Arena this season.

ANTHONY RIEBER

ATLANTA - Nate Robinson yelled and screamed and punched the air and celebrated like crazy after hitting a three-pointer that gave him 10 points in overtime and 40 overall in his return to the court Friday night.

Mike D'Antoni didn't mind. He may have even smiled a little.

Robinson, in one of the greatest escapes from a coach's doghouse in NBA history, finished with 41 points - including 25 in the fourth quarter and OT - as the Knicks overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to shock the Hawks, 112-108.

The 5-9 guard hadn't seen action for 14 straight games and hadn't played since Dec. 1.

"He showed a lot of character,'' D'Antoni said of Robinson, whom the Hawks couldn't keep away from the hoop as he repeatedly beat them off the dribble. "Hung in there and took the medicine and did a heck of a job."

With the game tied at 101, Robinson scored the Knicks' final 11 points. They took a 112-105 lead before Joe Johnson hit a three-pointer with one second left.

Robinson had eight a.ssists and six rebounds and shot 18-for-24 from the floor in 38:24. Said David Lee, "I was just happy to be on the same team, to get to root him on tonight. It was unreal."

A lot had happened since Robinson last stepped on an NBA court as more than a cheerleader. The year ended, and so did the decade. The Knicks went 8-6 without Robinson, and he was fined $25,000 for a trade request made by his agent.

All the while, Robinson kept (mostly) quiet and worked (mostly) hard, waiting for D'Antoni to once again covet his special brand of explosiveness and overlook his maddening mental lapses. On Friday, D'Antoni called on Robinson against the Hawks (21-11), and the energetic little man delivered off the bench in a huge way.

Robinson entered the game to replace Chris Duhon after a Knicks timeout with 3:01 to go in the first quarter. Oddly enough, when D'Antoni called for him to go in, Robinson didn't think it was him he was calling.

"When he called my name, I didn't hear,'' he said. "Coach, he has that accent. He says 'Nate,' sometimes it sounds like 'David.' I just stood there. Guys were like, 'You're in.' I was like, 'Oh.' "

Wilson Chandler had 24 points and 17 rebounds for the Knicks. Johnson had 28 points, Josh Smith 24 points and 10 rebounds and Al Horford 22 points and 19 rebounds for the Hawks.

The Knicks (13-20) tied the score at 97 with 38 seconds left on Robinson's basket. But Johnson hit a jumper over three Knicks before Robinson drove and scored with 11.3 seconds left to tie it again at 99.

Marvin Williams - whose three-pointer had given the Hawks an 89-75 lead with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter - missed a long three at the buzzer and the game went into OT.

With the score tied at 105, Robinson gave the Knicks their final lead with a drive and floater that ended with him sliding on the floor via a foul. Robinson hit the free throw for a 108-105 lead with 2:09 left and added a three-pointer with 1:32 to play.

Did Robinson learn anything by sitting for so long?

"It taught me a lot,'' he said. "It taught me how to be humble."

What did he think D'Antoni was trying to tell him by sitting him?

Said Robinson, "I have no idea."

Some may call it bad coaching, some may call it lighting a fire under his a.ss. I'm not sold off of one night's performance, though his energy and spark was missed. It was evident through the intensity in which we played down the stretch.

But would the old Nate have played like that when he got hot? No offense, the guy did his thing and has done it in the past, but when he started going on his rampages I never seen him take it to the rack time in and time out like he did. He'd usually break his man down and settle for heat check fadeaway J's.

Lets see if he can sustain a level of focus and intensity while minimizing the "Nate being Nate", until then, this was a much needed performance...I'm just not convinced.

Nate Robinson after today's practice continued to talk about being "humbled" during his 14-game benching. But asked if it would lead to any changes in his game, Robinson replied, "I'm going to continue to be myself, play the way I play."

Nevertheless, Mike D'Antoni said Nate is back in the rotation (Larry Hughes is the latest casualty) "for a while" after his electrifying 41-point comeback performance in Atlanta.

"I knew at some time I would go back," D'Antoni said. "He's too talented of a player not to try again. Again, I know before it was supposedly all personal; it's nothing personal. It's how can we make the playoffs, that's what this year is all about and I'm gonig to try everything I can . . . I'm not looking to next year and I don't think it's fair to the players or anybody else. That's the game plan."

It's not that Nate isn't aware that his antics are the cause for so much consternation. I recalled a private conversation I had with him in September, on the day he re-signed, when he talked about some of the things that have driven his coaches crazy and annoys some teammates who expect a more business-like approach to games.

"That's just me, that's who I am," he said. "I don't want to take away from anybody else on how they prepare for a game, but I'm not the serious, mean type before a game. My game face, nobody would know how I'm feeling . . . I could adjust it, but at the end of the day, I'm gonna be me."

A little later in the conversation, Nate then revealed something to me that I found stunning, especially if you consider he is so filled with bravado and self-confidence.

"I'm only 5-9," he said. "It's only a matter of time how long I'm going to be in the league or not."

The line came within the context of his seemingly relentless passion for the game and the fact that he is often back in the practice gym at night putting up shots even after spending most of the day there with the team.

I asked him then if he felt like, even after averaging 17.2 points per game the season before and some prolific performances, he still hadn't arrived yet as an NBA player.

"I just want to get better," he said. "Like that man 24 right there [he pointed to a picture of Kobe Bryant]. He works hard, 24-7. I want to be like that."

- Eddy Curry missed practice with a stomach ailment. And, no, after Robinson's escape from the bench, it doesn't appear as if Curry will be next to join him back in the rotation. Though Jonathan Bender took another day off to rest a sore leg, D'Antoni said he expects Bender will be able to play Sunday against the Pacers.

Marcus Landry got the minutes left vacant when Bender sat out the game in Atlanta and D'Antoni said he liked what he got out of the rookie and "we'll re-visit that" again, though probably not if Bender is able to play.

* - Lost in the excitement of Robinson's performance was another solid defensive effort by Jared Jeffries, who, D'Antoni said, "guarded the whole team."

Robinson had a hella proformance...propz. I was in a bar with a few Hawk Fans talking trash too me when the Knicks was down 14. I told them the Knicks was gonna win. I hated Nate..but he deserves my props.

D'antoni needs to figure out how to use this rotation. I read Larry Hughes might be benched now? I dont get it with D'antoni. He should be sitting Gallinari when that foool is streaky.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - With smoke still billowing off his red-hot shooting hand, Nate Robinson - back in the good graces of Mike D'Antoni's rotation - said no one should expect any changes in him or his game.

"I'm going to continue to be myself," Robinson said yesterday, a day after scoring 41 points against Atlanta in his first action since Dec. 1, thanks to a 14-game benching. "Play the way I play."

For one night, it resulted in an electrifying performance in a 112-108 overtime win over the Atlanta Hawks, but no one is more aware than D'Antoni that although Robinson may be out of the doghouse, he still needs to be kept on a leash.

"I hope that the intensity and level of concentration on defense stays the same," D'Antoni said. "If it does, then he becomes a real good player for us, and that's what we need."

Robinson's production off the bench - remember, he did average 17.2 points last season - could be a key component in a playoff push by the Knicks (13-20), who are in contention for the final two berths in the Eastern Conference with more than half the season remaining. Still, the Knicks came close to trading him - at his agent's request - to the Grizzlies in December.

According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Knicks had talks with Memphis about acquiring guard Marcus Williams and a draft pick for Robinson. The deal fell through, however, when Robinson vetoed the trade, which is his right because he signed a one-year contract.

Robinson reiterated Saturday that his intention is to stay with the Knicks. "This is home for me," he said. "I don't know anything else."

D'Antoni just wants him to show a better respect for the game and the game plan. "I know before it was supposedly all personal. It's nothing personal," he said. "It's how can we make the playoffs, that's what this year is all about, and I'm going to try everything I can."

It's not that Robinson isn't aware of those characteristics of his game that routinely drive his coaches crazy. In a private conversation in September, he admitted the antics and histrionics are something he tries to control but often - especially when he's on a roll - can't.

"That's just me. That's just who I am," Robinson told Newsday. "I don't want to take away from anybody else on how they prepare for a game, but I'm not the serious, mean type before a game. My game face, nobody would know how I'm feeling. That's how I get my energy flowing before a game. Everybody's different. I could adjust it, but at the end of the day, I'm gonna be me.''

Actually, it sounded as if D'Antoni was the one being more agreeable to changing his ways. He said that when Robinson heats up, rather than trying to force him to conform to D'Antoni's game, he would be more open to calling clear-outs for him. Everyone saw that in overtime against the Hawks, when, as D'Antoni said, "they couldn't keep him in front of them."

Said D'Antoni, "If we find something that works, I'm not going to be hard-headed."

Still, there were reasons why Robinson was demoted from the rotation, which were coincidentally the same factors why he was back in. Larry Hughes had provided solid two-way play off the bench, but a mid-December groin injury has caused a noticeable decline in his production at both ends of the floor. Though Hughes says he's healthy, D'Antoni said the veteran will swap places with Robinson for now.
