Nate on Letterman, a few other links

It’s a big week for Huskies (or former UW players) in the national TV limelight this week.
First it was Isaiah Thomas on ESPN2.
Now tonight, former UW guard Nate Robinson will appare on Late Night with David Letterman. You’ll probably have to stay up to the end of the shohw (or TIVO it) because he’s probably the last guest to appear. But making it in any form speaks to the noteriety he is earning from his slam dunk title and recent scoring prowess. This New York Times story today details how Robinson has shown his value to the Knicks and likely won’t be traded, as had been rumored.
ALSO OF NOTE TODAY. …
Brian Dohn of the LA Daily News has an interesting look at tonight’s game quoting some UCLA players as saying that the Huskies are a borderline dirty team.
— Kind of going along with the networks’s interview of Thomas the other day, ESPN.com has this feature on IT (though that’s not the same Dana who interviewed him) with some good stuff on his background. (And for everyone saying this team hasn’t been getting any attention, this is starting to be quite a bit for Thomas, who I know did quite a few interviews on Tuesday).
Mike Tokito of The Oregonian says tonight will go a long way toward answering if the Huskies are for real.
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports says UCLA is the still the best team in the Pac-10. He also says tonight’s game in Pauley may be the Pac-10 Game of the Year.
I’m in LA and I’ll have more from the arena in a little while.
