Default Just saw Dominique Wilkins.

My brother had to get some pictures developed at walmart this morning so i decided to go with him.
Driving into the parking lot i saw a raptors claw(a blimp type thing), so i thought nice you usually never see any bball support in Montreal especially at a walmart.

so i went up to the entrance and there was Dominique walking into his limo, and quickly i asked him if he could sign a piece of paper i had in my wallet. Seems like a really nice guy shook my hand and all.

Then there was some bball enthusiasts standing there and just to get a kick, my bro excitedly asked if that was Hakeem Olajuwon, they answered with a sigh saying, no man thats Dominique.

This is the first time ive ever met a bball player, the best part is that it was so out of the blue on a saturday morning, at walmart and in Montreal.

u guys got any stories where u unexpectedly saw any professional sports players?

i was at Best Buy and ran into Mike Bibby.

ok maybe it wasn't as "out of the blue" as yours but me and couple friends stopped to eat something and one of my friends told he just remembered that mike was going to be at best buy signing autographs and taking pictures. so we went next door and caught up to him right before the little session was over, we didn't even have to wait in line or anything.

I used to live down the street from Mike and the Maloofs. Saw him all the time.

I saw Muss, Vlade and Webb down there too.

i have about 4 witnesses to this story.

i met Allen Iverson in an alley in downtown DC (near 7th street somewhere). Really is there a more stereotypical way to run into Allen Iverson??

we were looking for a shortcut to get back to our parking lot after the Sixers/Wizards game. AI had missed the game with 1 broken thumb and 1 sprained thumb so i guess he left right after the game. he had 2 HUGE NFL looking bodyguards. Iverson seemed very down to earth. we talked for probably less then 10 seconds. the bodyguards didn't look too friendly.

Ya it was really cool because dominique wilkins goes to like every hawks game and i was sitting in the third row from courtside and i had binoculars and i was looking in the crowd and i saw him and after the game we wanted to get a family picture on the court and when we were done we saw Nique walking towards us and i got his autograph.

We were chilling on the court at the LA Fitness in Corona, Ca. after playing and outta the blue Tyson Chandler walks in and he just shoots around for about an hour and leaves. I didnt bother him or anything only cause I dont really get star struck and I feel in most cases it's pretty rude.

Oh this one motocross dude his name is James "Bubba" Stewart always comes in our store to buy golf crap. Really chill guy I guess his sponsor(Kawasaki) has a test course thats like down the street from my house, so he lives close by cause of that.
