(The Sports Xchange) - The Portland Trail Blazers had a snake in their locker room on Thursday. Not a backstabbing, treacherous team mate -- a real live snake.
Robinson, who stands 6'10" (2.08m) and weighs 237 pounds (107.5kg), was unnerved by the find.
"I screamed," he said. "I saw something curled up. I screamed. I jumped. I yelled."
Security personnel removed the snake from the locker.
Robinson scored only two points on Thursday as the Trail Blazers were beaten 114-97 to fall 2-0 behind in their best-of-seven Western Conference semi-finals series.
