Though the Cleveland Cavaliers are at the top of the Eastern Conference with a record of 30-13, they've lost five of their last seven games and are 4-6 in their last 10. LeBron James is not happy about it.
After losing their most recent game to the struggling 18-27 New Orleans Pelicans, LeBron showed his frustration by saying the team needs a playmaker and that he isn't getting any younger.
Nate Robinson believes he is the player the Cavaliers need.
The former 3-time NBA Slam Dunk champion has been planning an NBA comeback since his failed attempt to join the NFL. The 32-year-old guard has been working out with Chris Hyppa, a global skill development coach based in Tacoma, Washington. Robinson has posted his workouts on Instagram, attempting to show that he still has what it takes to play in the NBA.
Robinson has been hoping to catch LeBron's attention on social media. He recently posted this on Instagram.

And he even left comments under pictures tagging ESPN to let the Cavs know he s available.

Robinson most recently played in the Israeli Basketball Premier League with Hapoel Tel Aviv, where he averaged 16.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.8 steals per game. His last stint in the NBA was with the New Orleans Pelicans during the 2015-2016 season, but he played in only two games before being released.
