On Friday, Moose and Maggie’s Mystery Guest presented by Jersey Mike’s brought some serious hops to the 1 p.m. (happy?) hour on WFAN.

Today’s Mystery Guest admitted to being a college football player and professional basketball player calling from the Pacific Northwest, and that he wore purple and gold in college and played for seven (actually eight) NBA teams over a decade in the league. Maggie Gray unsuccessfully guessed Bonzi Wells, Isiah Thomas, and Jamal Crawford, but after the minute to guess expired and the guest revealed that he was the only three-time Slam Dunk Champion in NBA history, he was quickly identified as…

Nate Robinson!

Yes, it was former Knick “KryptoNate” who joined Moose and Maggie to kick off their final hour, and, in a way, noted his NBA career was incomparable, outside of perhaps taking the same path from football to basketball (albeit not as successful on one side) as fellow ex-Knick Charlie Ward.

“I love basketball, but there’s something special about football; I can’t say which one was more fun, but I really enjoyed playing both all the way up to college,” Robinson said. “I had to pick one, and I picked hoops; I think I could’ve played in the NFL, but I picked hoops, and I never regret that decision.”

Robinson also shed some light on that NBA career, how he feels he could still be playing at a high level now, and how he got that insane vertical that helped a 5-foot-9 guard win three Slam Dunk titles. He also got into a discussion about hair, specifically Carlos Boozer’s, which you can listen to by refreshing the page and watching the video at the top, and can see from this Tweet sent by the Moose & Maggie team after the interview:
