Watch what happens when shirtless fan challenges Nate Robinson to a game of one-on-one

Former NBA star is interrupted twice during on-camera interview in Israel.

Former NBA star Nate Robinson hasn't been in Tel Aviv, Israel, with his new team, Hapoel Tel Aviv, more than a week, and he's already become a fan favorite – and a favorite of fans looking to test their basketball skills against an NBA veteran.

Robinson was giving an interview to a local media outlet in the city's Hayarkon Park recently when he was interrupted not once, but twice, by a local named Raz Nisim Cohen, a clearly confident ballplayer who challenged Robinson to a game of one-on-one on camera during the interview. Robinson, ever the consummate professional, laughed off Cohen, but Cohen would have none of it, again calling him out.

No word on the victor, or if the game even occurred, but while Cohen reportedly played professionally in Israel for a season, it's likely Robinson, who scored 25 points in his Israeli debut Sunday night, would have the upper hand. But hey, at least Cohen got this cool picture to post to his Facebook page.
