Why Nate Robinson Enjoys Women's Basketball: "They go all out at all times."

Boston Celtics guard Nate Robinson at last week's WNBA Fit Clinic in Seattle.

When Boston Celtics guard Nate Robinson was asked at last week's WNBA Fit Clinic at KeyArena about how he enjoyed Game 1 of the WNBA Finals - in which he was seen doing the Stanky Legg courtside - and offered the following perspective on women's basketball.

"In women's basketball, women play so much harder than guys - they go all out at all times," he said after describing how much he enjoyed watching Lauren Jackson. "They do everything. They box out, you know, they do everything that all the coaches try to get us men to do -- the women do it all. I'm a fan of just sports and basketball so I'm gonna be a women's basketball fan."

"Ask any guy and they'll tell you: they might not do the dunks and shoot just as good as us and things like that, but they definitely play just as hard as we do."

It certainly fits with the statements of others - such as Bill Russell or John Wooden - that women play basketball "the right way", but I've never heard anyone put it in quite these terms.
