no wonder Hasselbeck has a rocket arm....

just do research on the nba players go to nba.com and click on players it will bring up their profile and just click on bio.. or go to answers.com and find a player and usually at the end there is a Trivia section.. unless u totally sure about a player.. but ya NFL players MLB players is fine too...

Emeka Okafor is not his real name

His full name is Chukwuemeka Noubuisi Okafor, His first name means “God has done well”

Not necessarily, but the odds are pretty high. Other interesting facts:


-Baron Davis and The Game played on the same HS team
-Jason Kidd's father died during the first round of the '97 playoffs(Jason said a regular diet of "chips and pop" gave him the fatal heart attack)
-Vince Carter was awarded a music scholarship, but ended up playing basketball
-Richard Jefferson's parents are both missionaries
-Jason Collins taught at a Sunday school as a teenager
-Andre Miller asked Vlade Divac for an autograph when he was 13 and was turned down
-Paul Pierce used to sneak into the Great Western Forum as a teenager to watch Laker games


For retired players:


-Charles Barkley grew 6 inches his senior year of high school
-Nick Anderson's childhood friend was shot and killed just before he entered the NBA
-The driver responsible for killing Malik Sealy has been arrested at least once since then for the same charge
-Neither of Michael Jordan's parents are over 5'9"
-Kenny Walker won the 1989 Slam Dunk contest 3 days after his father passed away
-Reggie Lewis was rumored to be on drugs just prior to his death
-Drazen Petrovic was rumored to leave the Nets after the 1992-93 season to play in Croatia

Isn't this true of half of the people in the NBA?

Regarding Jordan: I think he is the only person in his family taller than 6 foot.

Another interesting fact: Danny Ainge played professional baseball

wit a vert like that why was VC into music??
and NC signed VC to a music scholarship so they could sign another top recruit... they have the star players walk-on all the time to save scholarships but they tell them that they'll put them on the team
