Nate Robinson’s NBA career ended in 2016. The famous basketball player also played in the American BIG3 league and was a household name for a long time. However, a serious illness ensued that Nate is still battling. Will one of the most exciting dunkers in NBA history be able to overcome his illness and what will it take to do so? Robinson himself will answer this question.

Famous NBA players Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller host The OGs Show podcast, to which they invited Robinson. In a friendly conversation, Nate answered many questions, but the main one, naturally, was about his health. It was previously known that the former basketball player for the New York Knicks and many other clubs in the association had kidney problems. Robinson detailed that he fights for his life literally every day.

“I know I don’t have much time to live if I don’t get a kidney. So I just want to make the most of life. Some people’s bodies reject dialysis. And thank God mine accepts it and I can live… If I hadn’t had this procedure I probably wouldn’t have lived more than a week or two. “So this is very serious.”

Dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally. Robinson said he spends four hours on the machine, three times a week, and thanks to dialysis he is still alive.

“The dialysis machine is prolonging my life right now. So I enjoy the moments when I feel healthy. I try to spend time with my kids, see my family, play basketball, do what I enjoy,” Robinson continued. It’s great that the basketball player is not discouraged and is trying to do everything within his power.

Nate then continued and talked about what he needed to change in his life: “I changed my diet, just trying to eat better, avoiding a lot of processed foods. “I try to eat fruits and grilled foods, grilled chicken and fish, healthier foods, that’s how I can stay as alive as possible.”

Finally, Robinson spoke about the seriousness of this disease. “Some people with kidney problems end up in the hospital and never come out. “I stay as humble as I can and just thank God for every opportunity… For being alive and having the opportunity to do whatever I want every day.”

The story of an NBA champion with a sad ending:

Michael Jordan’s teammate and NBA champion was murdered in 2002. His death remains a mystery.

In 2022, Robinson spoke for the first time about his illness and that he initially remained silent about its existence. However, Nate now speaks calmly about her and continues to fight for her life. The three-time dunk contest winner needs a kidney transplant. But unfortunately, so far the former NBA player has not been able to find the right donor. Throughout 11 seasons in the league, the player managed to provide basketball fans with a ton of highlights, standing out mainly for his mind-blowing dunks. The 175 cm tall Nate surprised on the court and gave many undersized talents, by NBA standards, the opportunity to believe in themselves.

Health is the most important thing in every person’s life. Some have already understood it, but for others it is still an empty phrase. You can get injured doing sports, but when it comes to the possibility of dying, everything else takes a backseat. Nate Robinson – cheers! Just like every reader, athlete, person. Take care of yourself.
