Former Washington star Nate Robinson is a Seahawks fan in Broncos territory. The nine-year NBA veteran plays for the Denver Nuggets, but his football allegiance it to his hometown team.

Robinson told the Denver Post: “”Even though I’m with the Nuggets, I can’t go against the grain. I’m going with Seattle.”

Robinson, a two-sport standout at UW, said he gave a verbal commitment to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll when he was at USC. The two have remained in contact over the years.

“I’ve been to a couple of practices this past summer and coach Carroll said that he’ll have me hoist the ’12th Man’ flag next season,” Robinson said.
