Nathaniel Cornelius Robinson (born May 31, 1984, in Seattle, Washington) is an American professional basketball player who plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Robinson is listed at just 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m) with shoes, making him one of the shortest players currently in the NBA behind Earl Boykins, but Robinson has an extremely high vertical leap of 43.5 inches (110 cm), currently one of the highest vertical leaps of any NBA player.

Robinson has served as a successful point guard for both the Knicks and Celtics, achieving career stats of 12 points, 1 steal, and 3 assists in an average of 24 minutes played per game. Robinson is the NBA's first three-time slam dunk champion.

Robinson spent his first two years of high school at Rainier Beach High School in Seattle. He moved to Union City, California, where he played for James Logan High School for one year, and then returned to Rainier Beach. At Beach, he excelled in basketball, football, and track. He led his basketball team to a 28–1 record and won the AAA state championship as a senior with University of Louisville star Terrence Williams, USC alumnus Lodrick Stewart, and former University of Kansas player Rodrick Stewart. He averaged 17.9 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and three steals per game as a senior in 2002, and was named the AAA State player of the year in Washington. He led his team to a no. 7 national ranking in USA Today, and was one of the 100 finalists for the McDonald's High School All-America team. Rainier Beach retired Robinson's No. 2 jersey on September 10, 2010.
