Here is Nate Robinson: former NBA journeyman guard, aspiring NFL player, and current guard for professional Israeli basketball team Hapoel Tel Aviv BC.

Robinson is sitting in a park, presumably somewhere near Tel Aviv, doing a polite interview with Israel's Sport 5 TV channel. It is polite. Professional. Then, from off-camera, this random, shirtless, and unquestionably ripped dude rides up to Robinson on a bike—we're guessing a child's bike, since it's laughably tiny, and reptile green—and challenges Robinson to a one-on-one.

"I've beaten everybody in the academy," Mr. Small Bicycle Man says to Robinson, before riding off.

"That's an interview," Robinson snarks, surpressing his surprise with a smile like the pro that he is. "That's the first time ever someone's done that. Sick. So cool. Fans are great."

Then, from off camera: "Nate! I'll kick your ass, baby!"

Nate Robinson thinks this is hilarious. Then, after a little bit more back-and-forth—is that a bicep pose we see? yup, it is—the cameraman gets in on the action.

"That sounds like a challenge," he says.

"Yeah, it's a challenge." Robinson's face goes dark. "I'll bust his ass."

Note to the cameraman: When Robinson devours this guy's soul and dunks into the empty void where that guy's neck used to be, get that on camera too.
