What is under 6 feet, full of energy and can leap tall NBA centers in a single bound? Nate Robinson of course! Lil Nate personified the phrase "Big things come in small packages" by leaving us all speechless after the 2009 Slam Dunk Championship.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — When Chad Jones was a kid, his mom used to poke fun at him for his fascination with basketball sneakers. Little did she know that all these years later her son would wind up with more than 1,000 pairs of sneakers and an amazing story to go with it.
Growing up in Brooklyn, Jones was all about sneakers and the culture that surrounded them. What fueled Chad's desire to build a collection of exotic kicks over the years? Maybe it was the fact that Michael Jordan and Jones were both from BK—MJ is Jones' favorite player.
