We wouldn't have thought the Knicks locker room would resemble something from "Oz," but hey, when short hopper Nate Robinson is around, one never knows.
According to the New York Daily News, Robinson made a bet with teammate Malik Rose on the Seahawks-Eagles Monday night game a couple of weeks ago. The Seahawks won 42-0, Robinson won the bet, Rose welshed on the bet and then there was all kinds of trouble.
"Nate tried to jump on me when I was naked, thinking he had the advantage that way," Rose said. "He just got on my nerves, trying to get his money, and I'm not giving it to him. It was a couple of dollars."
Apparently, Rose said the bet shouldn't count since Brian Westbrook was injured before halftime. When he wouldn't pay up, Robinson jumped him in the shower.
Your 2005-06 New York Knicks, ladies and gentlemen.
