Horace Grant, walking in the street in Chicago.
Charlie Bell, lived real closeto my parents house in Lugo when he played for breogan so whenever i visited them i coudl find him in the supermarket or in the bar.

I ran into Aude Norris once in an airport in Barcelona when i was a kid too.

Not sure if Fran Vazquez Counts, ive meet him in the street in Lugo several times too , HIs town MOnforte is a few miles away from Lugo wich is the capital of the stte)

Jared Dudley came out to use the ATM after the Suns public practice and was swarmed by people in the ticket lines to get pictures and stuff. I stayed in line, so I didn't get to actually meet him, but I was the first to see him (I remember saying, "Dude! It's Dudley!"), which is what the thread title is asking.

I have a friend who runs a management company back home in Philly and everytime I go I either see Iguodala, Reggie Evans, E-Snow, people like that. When I worked with the Sixers this summer I saw a couple players as well. Hopefully once this Bobcats internship works this summer I'll be able to see some players outside of the Philadelphia setting.

No one ever believes me...but when I was 8, I swear I saw MJ drive past my house. He was playing in a golf tournament a few towns over that day and I saw a guy who looked just like him in a huge limo driving by. My family taunted me about such claims. But my ex-porn star cousin who banged the guy who played Dick Tracey believed me! Oh my silly mind...

But my sister, who cares nothing about basketball, has seen a bunch of guys. She told me she saw Karl Malone at IHOP, and it ended up being Clyde Drexler. So unfair. Then a bunch of the Rockets came into get massages at the clinic in Houston she worked at...and she saw T-Mac and Juwan Howard. The biggest celebrity I've ever met is X-Pac from pro wrestling.

Carmelo Anthony in Mexico when we were going to go deep sea fishing. We got out of the car that took us down to the dock where we would get on the boat we were going out on and theres Melo and a few other guys just standing there waiting to go out on there boat.

Seems weird living in Denver and never seeing any Rockies, Nuggets, or Broncos players around town and then I see Melo in Mexico lol

Wilson Chandler is from my hometown which is small so I see him every once in awhile, watched a lot of his games in high school. He might have been the worst player I have ever seen when he was a sophomore.

My parents used to go to a casino in Indiana and they saw Michael Jordan in there a lot. :laugh2: no surprise there anymore.

this isnt my story but thought id share:



I see Sammy Dalembert of the Sixers (yes i know he stinks, but he's still a pro athlete in philly) all the time in a bar/restraunt in Manayunk. He is good friends with the owners and when he is in town he's there often. I've probably seen him there at least 20 times now as my girlfriend's friends bartend there so we are there often. (also I've never seen them personally but some of the bartenders there have told me that Ryan Howard, and Victorino have been in there before also) But anyway Sammy is always sitting a table talking it up with the owners. I was told he actually pitched in a bunch of money at the place to recently get it renivated and fixed up.

He's actually a really nice guy and will talk to you even if you don't go up and start the conversation as I've talked to him a few times where I never intiated the conversation. One night he actually bought a friend of mine and his g/f a drink also. I think the coolest thing he ever did though was one night he showed up at one of our friend's apartment right across the street from the bar/restraurant for some after hours partying and he walked right up to so many people and introduced himself and wasn't like alot of althletes that disappear to the corner and keep to themselves. So anyway after about 15 minutes he disappeared and appeared to of left for the night but then about 15 minutes later he showed back up with about 7-8 pizza boxes in his hand...he had bought everyone at the party pizza, a very nice gesture. Then again when your making 10 million dollars a season thats really like pocket change for him. lol

I've talked with Kobe several times. It's not like we're the best of friends, but if he saw me, he'd know who I am.

I met Kobe at UCI gym. He goes there often, had a convo with him for about 10 minutes the first time around. I saw him again about a year later, and he happened to remember me. This time, he had Artest with him and we were chatting it up about the team and whatnot for about 15 minutes. Third time, at the gym, He needed help directing his Lamborghini into a parking space.

I also know Jeannie Buss through a friend's friend. I met her, she got me 2 tix frontcourt seats to a Laker game. Then she had my friends and I meet PJ after the game. I happened to see Kobe in the hallway (outside of the locker room) then, too, and we were talking about the game for a couple of minutes.

My friend also hit me up recently saying that Jeannie is gonna get him frontcourt seats for us again. This time, we're gonna be in the locker room with the team after the game too.


Edit: Oh yeah, i've also known Paul George and his family for a long time. I played ball with him a few times at the local park, guy is freakishly athletic.
