who is the most talented when it comes to doing things off the court? like other hobbies or professions they take up ?

for example stephen jackson is a rapper.. not a very good one at that haha but still

another example would be shaq even though he isn't in the league anymore.. great TV personality

idk any good golfers?

im just curious to see if there are any NBA players who take up other things outside of the sport hahaha

hahaha i would give best bare-knuckle boxer to artest.. and as far as best fireman goes, I still have a problem giving him that title considering if he actually needed to get to an extinguisher then he would have injured himself in the first place and wouldn't have been able to save the day haha

Lopez Brothers, Fields and Lin are kids that went to IVY league schools so what ever they do outside of the NBA i bet they are probably better at it then anybody else is in the league. I mean Stanford and Harvard grads would be millionaires even with out the NBA try and name someone else in the the league that would be a millionaire without a sport to help them get there.

Wikipedia on Martin Nash:
"He spent the majority of his playing career in North America, most notably in the Vancouver area, but also played in England for Stockport County, Chester City and Macclesfield Town."

If this is professional, then, given their work ethics and physic abilities, 80% of NBA player (at least the guards) could become soccer professionals if they decided to start playing soccer instead of Basketball.


I mean Martin Nash never was in the best 10000 (10k) soccer players in the world.
