The wrestler "The Undertaker" and Magic Johnson played high school ball together.

Guard who scored the most points in the 90's wasn't Jordan, Drexler, GP or Reggie Miller. It was Mitch Richmond.

Ron Artest and Elton Brand got in a fight once during warmups when they played AAU... on the same team.

Really? Lame. I'd always heard that rumored to be true, but I've definitely never seen proof of it.

What a random rumor to be made up.

Dikembe Mutombo is fluent in 7-9 languages though (depending on what source you believe). So he's got that going for him.

The first minority player in the NBA entered the league in 1947, an American born (Ogden, Utah) Japanese player that was drafted by the Knicks.

A.C. Green isn't actually a virgin, he's a "born again virgin" which meant he chose to not have premarital sex after he was baptized.

Kwame Brown has scars on his forearm from cigarrette burns given to him by his abusive father.

Bill Walton used to have a severe stuttering problem. He also once threw his shoe at the basketball during a game.

For 3 years from 2004-2007 Marquis Daniels was the highest paid player in the '03 draft class, ahead of Lebron, Wade, Melo, Bosh etc.

Josh Howard’s legs were so severely bowed as an infant that he underwent a procedure in which they were broken and reset so that they could grow straight.

And I thought this was funny:
Burned corneas: Charles Barkley, Phoenix, November 1994
Barkley missed the opening game of the 1994-95 season with one of the most unbelievable ailments of all time. Apparently the stage lights at an Eric Clapton concert he attended were too bright, causing him to rub his eyes. A nasty chemical reaction occurred due to the hand lotion Barkley had been using, and he burned the first layer of his corneas.
