As of 2014, NBA guard Nate Robinson's vertical leap has been measured at 35.5 inches for a standing jump and 43.5 for a running leap. These measurements rank him number five on the list of the 10 best jumpers in NBA history.

Standing at only 5 feet and 9 inches, Robinson is one of the shorter players in the modern NBA. His incredible jumping ability has allowed him to play as if he were much taller. One of his most notable achievements was bounding over 7-foot-tall Dwight Howard to win the 2009 dunk competition. Robinson also had a memorable play where he blocked the shot of 7 and 1/2-foot-tall Yao Ming.
