I grew up with Myron Rolle (Rookie Safety on Tennesse). I played on the same basketball team with him, went to elementary and middle school together.

My friend's Dad has worked in Atlantic City and now in Connecticut at the casinos. He brings in sport stars and hooks them up with their rooms and shows them around. My friend has so many signed jerseys, shoes, bands, etc you name it he has it, from Jordan to Shaq to Holyfield to Tyson. He met the big three a few weeks ago. He ate dinner at Shaqs house after game 1 of LA vs Philly finals. I can go on on about all the crap he has seen. It's crazy awesome. His basement just has picture and jerseys and shoes decorated everywhere. His Dad's has played golf with Jordan.

Im not really friends with any players, and this is probably off topic, but my friends cousin is Michael Beasley, and ive played basketball with Rudy Gay while he was in MD, and the court time before me and my work buddies had at a school in Baltimore, Gilbert Arenas was on the court before us with Brendan Haywood and some Wizards workers.

And I know this isnt NBA, but my Dad works with Walter Payton's backup during their Superbowl season.

We also have a couple of teammates of my Dad, my godfather being one of them, who played in Europe since they weren't quite good enough to make it in the NBA.

Yeah when I was pretty young I met Ray while he was still a Buck and then after we traded him the Bucks went into the cellar of the league, but after we got Jennings I got to meet him and Bogut and have dinner with them. And my dad grew up with sports agent David Dunn who is Aaron Rodgers agent so I've had the pleasure of meeting him also.

One of the nicest and classiest guys you will ever meet. He is a very loyal person and never wanted to leave Milwaukee. There's even been talk that he wants to come back home to Milwaukee to finish his career. He's always been fond of Milwaukee.

I used to play pony league baseball against Manny Ramirez and Frankie Rodriguez.

Terrence Mathis tried to dunk on me once and I hacked the hell out of him and we started jawing. I had to sit him down.(former Atlanta Falcon-No one is going to yoke on me)

And Billy Hoyle(Woody harrelson on white men can't jump) was on a pick up team of mine. He and some guy were talking ish and I had to tell him "Woody Chill".

LOL.... Just funny stories.

EDIT: and I forgot my mom babysat a kid who's father got knocked out by Hector Camacho in the first round at MSG>

Before I retired (sort of) I worked in a rec complex. We hosted a couple of NHL and NBA charity oldtimer games. I got to know a lot of the guys, but the NHL guys were more fun. I could tell you some stories about our visits to local establishments, but not on here. :)
