While many have expressed concerns over Nate Robinson's brutal knockout from Jake Paul during last Saturday's Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. event, that hasn't stopped the Internet from doing what it does best -- creating memes.
The unfortunate result for the retired NBA player (and three-time dunk champ) has even led to the creation of a Marijuana pack called the "Night Night Nate" pack which depicts the infamous scene of an unconscious Robinson on the front of the packagaing. Many will agree that the capitalization of such a traumatic viral event is in poor taste, but it also does beg the question if Robinson was compensated adequately for this scary ordeal. The answer is actually quite interesting.
On paper, Robinson's disclosed purse was only a meager $600 USD ($100 USD per round). While that number may make your stomach turn, there's good news. He was also awarded roughly an additional $500,000 USD for pay-per-view bonus money. There's still no news on if he will be getting any royalties for the cannabis packs, but what your thoughts? Was the $500,600 USD worth the KO and lifetime reminder?
