Former NBA player Nate Robinson compared Zach LaVine to the legendary Vince Carter.

Robinson said LaVine reminds him of Carter on how they utilize their athletic abilities to their advantage.

“I would say, Zach has a little – I like his game because he can create off the dribble, create a shot for himself and others. If you’re able to do that, that will make you almost unguardable. One, he has athleticism. So when he gets by guys, he’s dunking and it’s easy.

Guys don’t even want to jump with him so he has a lot of things going in his favor. And he has developed his game over the years from like, when he came into the league to when he had to wait and to be patient and he still had everything that he had now.

It just wasn’t magnified because of the team that he was on and he had to wait. And when he got his opportunity, he came in and showed that he could really ball,” Robinson told Brandon ”Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com.
