On Tuesday night, Sneaker Files had a chance to briefly speak with the 2006 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest champion, Nate Robinson. Nate is competing in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest tonight for the third time this evening (Champion in 2006, second-place in 2007). Nate’s height is LISTED at 5’9 which makes him and Spud Webb the only two people under six feet tall to win the Sprite Slam Dunk contest.

When asked about his choice of Nike sneakers for the 2009 contest, Nate was tight-lipped and would only say that “they’re going to be green.”

Leprechaun shoes perhaps?
