Nate Robinson joins Nuggets
Nate Robinson is packing his travel bags for the seventh time in his eight-year NBA career after signing with the Denver Nuggets. This change comes after playing in a career-high 82 games for the Bulls last season in which he averaged 13.1 points in the regular season and a thrilling 16.3 points in the postseason. The Nuggets could use a spark plug, having lost in the playoffs in the first round four years in a row. In addition to signing Robinson, Denver has a new head coach in Brian Shaw as well as a new general manager. Will all the moves pay off?
From the inside out, we've seen a little bit of everything in the playoffs -- dominating all-around play from LeBron James, strong defensive performances by Roy Hibbert and spectacular shooting from Stephen Curry. But who knew players such as Nate Robinson, Mike Conley or Kawhi Leonard would step up the way they have? NBA Insider David Thorpe ran down his postseason MVP rankings and it's time for SportsNation to do the same.

What do you think about the broadcast of President Obama's first pitch?
It didn't make the pitch look any faster or higher off the ground, but the odd angle did cause some watching the All-Star Game to cry conspiracy.
Would you play in Greece if you could make twice as much money?
Knicks guard Nate Robinson reportedly has a two-year offer from Olympiakos, the team that lured Josh Childress to Athens.
Does seeing your team's players having fun with rivals bother you?
