What's up reddit! I'm Nate Robinson, former /r/nba player and I'm here with my brother Chicken to answer all your questions.

I've been wanting to do one of these after hearing stories of other athlete's breaking major news through their AMAs (looking at you Connor Barwin 😂)

After getting tired of how awful my kids' bags smelled after practice and games (and remembering the stank some of my teammates caused in the locker room), I teamed up with some folks to invent an all-natural, long-lasting, bacteria-killing gym bag deodorizer we're calling "Slam it in the Bag" we JUST launched a Kickstarter so we could offer fans some once-in-a-lifetime perks (like playing me one-on-one IRL or Madden/NBA2K)

It'd mean a lot to me if you checked it out

My Proof


4:25pm est - alright. Gonna take a break. Might pop back in and give some more answers later but this was a ton of fun, sorry we were a little late getting it going. LOVE YOU ALL.

I know i said it a bunch in this thread but for real slamitinthebag.com shit legit works keeping your gym bag fresh and for you keyboard warriors out there pissin in bottles, put this shit in your room so it aint a science experiment anymore

If anyone wants something signed, dm me a confirmation of kickstarter backing and we’ll set it up!

Edit: GONNA KEEP ANSWERING!!! Love this!!

Considering that in many people's opinions that you SHOULD be in a team playing in the NBA, would you say that you're in some way or form being blackballed by the league?

What makes slamitinthebag better than Febreeze?

TheNateRobinson120 karma

No spray getting all over your shit! As the tea tree oil evaporates it naturally sanitizes and deodorizes. Put this in your locker, car, bag or bathroom and you dont have to think about it again for 90 days!

Leff_hook26 karma

Hey Nate! I'm a huge fan of yours! I've followed your career since you came into the league and I've always loved your fierceness and tenacity on the court.

How does it feel knowing that a lot of the shorter kids can look up to you, knowing that they don't necessarily have to be 6'7" to aspire to play ball?

Would you be offended if I said that you're kind of like this generations Spud Webb?

TheNateRobinson63 karma

Naw that’s a honor to be compared to anyone influential ‘ I just want to inspire people
