I'm just interested in what other sports certain NBA players are great @. What kind of sports have they ventured & found success in?

Tim Duncan could have been a pro swimmer.
Allen Iverson was an excellent football player in College.
Cliff Robinson bowls regularly as a recreational activity & is really good.
I'm sure you've seen Nash's soccer skills in the dunk contest last yr.

A pro swimmer? I want to sponsor a team. This could overtake NASCAR....

Iverson didn't play football in college either.
Didn't he? High school whatever? I know he's supposed to be good @ football.

Yes, football was his first love. I once saw a special on him and he said he cried and cried when his mom made him go to his first basketball practice. LOL! I think he was in either junior high or high school. Or maybe it was AAU.

LeBron was Mr Football in the state of Ohio, evidently he was offered numerous college scholarships to play football.

He bowls with Jason Kidd in a league in New Jersey I believe. I'll be on his team. Not only would I meet him but my 210 average would help his team. Now I want to see Vince bowl. Should be interesting.

He was the bomb at football, ironically enough Mike Vick grew up and I believe went to the same school as Iverson and watched his tapes many times tryingn to mimick his game.

I read somewhere that Greg Ostertag was an excellent ping pong player.
and remember karl Malone and Dennis Rodman were pro wrestler for a time. tho I dont know if they were any good at it.
I can see Harpring being good at football because he's pretty gung-ho on the court. I bet he played free/strong saftey.

I bet Bruce Bowen knows like TaeKwonDo or something b/c he's always trying to kick someone on the court.
