Robinson: Good to 'start from scratch'

After being traded to the Celtics in February, Nate Robinson is looking forward to returning this fall with a new contract, one that gives him a fresh start in his sixth NBA season. "For me, I think it will be a good start for me to just come in and start from scratch,” he said in a conference call. “I loved my time there in Boston. The fans welcomed me with open arms, the team, coach Doc (Rivers), Danny Ainge, everybody, the whole organization, they were real good to me. I decided they’re a great, winning organization, a lot of history, and I think I fit in well with the guys. So I was like, why not?”  For more on Robinson, visit the Celtics team page.
