Despite standing just 5 feet 9, the former Rainier Beach High great starred for the Huskies in football and basketball. He was taken in the first round 21st overall of the NBA draft. My cousin Passion taught me everything I knew before I ever played organized ball or five-on-five ball or anything. She taught me how to dribble, how to shoot and how to work hard. She would wake up at six in the morning and wake me up and make me do drills with her. It was funny because she never let me shoot while she worked out. I would just rebound and pass, rebound and pass. Since she used to do it, I learned it. She taught me about dedication at a very young age. It also helped that when it came to basketball, and sports in general, things just came naturally to me, like jumping. Another thing that helped me was that I was faster than all the other kids and I learned things quicker. My mom says that I was walking before I was seven months old and that I was riding a bike around age two. I have three kids of my own and I know that I did those things way earlier than they did. I was so blessed with a strong work ethic for things I liked, which allowed me to spend hours practicing sports without a break when other kids get bored.

OK Please send me the verification email again There was an error reconnecting. No more bouncing around. I wanted to play just varsity. He told me he had no problem with that if I was good enough.

After basketball I ran track, and that summer my dad worked with me on finding my true jump shot. You just need to be able to knock down your shot all the time.

He signed me up for some shooting camps and we worked all June and July on my form and on my rotation. After a few months of shooting what felt like a million balls with perfect form, one day I was out there stroking it and I knew I had it. All the hard work paid off. My dad saw me shooting and he was so proud. With everything you can do, you just need to go out there and do it.

Be the best you can be.

Interview: Nate Robinson Talks about his Book Heart over Height

You just need to believe in yourself. When school came back around in the fall, I went in for my physical and saw that I had grown about five inches! I'm the same height right now that I was my sophomore year in high school. Every summer I would go for my physical and watch them measure my height and it was always the same: Even in college I kept hoping for a few more inches.

I knew plenty of guys who grew three or four inches at nineteen or twenty years old.

But not me. My mom is short so I guess I got the short gene. Thanks to all of my hard work that summer, I met my goal of playing only varsity as a sophomore.

Our team was awesome. Me and the twins, Lodrick and Rodrick Stewart, who were already 6'4" as sophomores, came off the bench and lit it up.

For the record, I dunked a volleyball for the first time when I was in eighth grade and I dunked a basketball for the first time in a game my sophomore year.

The dunk happened on an out-of-bounds alley-oop play and the gym exploded. Nobody expected it. Even the other team's fans went crazy. It was just awesome. I probably could have dunked earlier but I have small hands, so at the time I needed to either cuff the ball or dunk it off a pass.

That first dunk put me on the map as a basketball player in Seattle. At the time I was best known for football, but once people heard I could dunk and started hearing about all the other things I could do on the court, the basketball talk really picked up. I'll never forget it because we won every tournament we were in and I was just coming into my own as a legitimate basketball player. After that summer, I realized I wanted to play college basketball too.
