Part of guard Nate Robinson believes he just got traded to heaven. More specifically, the home of Sonic.
Robinson's love affair America's Drive-In began during his AAU days at the age of 14 when he traveled to Las Vegas every summer.
"There's one right by the Palms (Hotel)," said Robinson, whose go-to order is a No. 3 -- Ex-Long Chili Cheese Coney with tots.
When he was informed Oklahoma City is Sonic's national headquarters, Robinson replied, "I need to talk to somebody at headquarters then -- get me some free Sonic."
Robinson discussed a potential endorsement deal. "I hope so," Robinson said. "I like those Slushes. I can get in that car and head out. I can do that easy."
Though in town less than 24 hours, Robinson claimed he already had familiarized himself with Sonic locations. "I know where all of them are at now," he said. "I'm going to be at Sonic a lot. I might just have to invest in one, sooner or later."
