24. Nate Robinson
Former NBA star Robinson’s career is most noteworthy for his success in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. The former New York Knicks star was an explosive leaper and won the competition three times. However, he was under the mistaken belief that because he was an elite athlete, he was capable of being competitive in any sport. Unfortunately, this wasn’t true as he discovered in his professional boxing debut in 2020.
Robinson fought YouTube star Jake Paul on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s comeback exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. The former NBA star suffered a brutal knockout as he failed to show his skills. After the fight, boxing fans, analysts, and combat sports athletes slammed the Californian State Athletic Commission for sanctioning the fight. Combat sports is not a game.
