Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens are putting the band back together. Sort of. They’ll be playing as teammates, but only on TV. While playing basketball. Yeah, I don’t get it, either. Break it down for us, blockquote.
McNabb and Owens are teaming up on a basketball court instead of a football field in the new season of Spike TV’s “Pros vs. Joes.” The episode features NFL players that played college basketball against former NBA stars.
McNabb (Syracuse), Owens (Tennessee-Chattanooga) and Antonio Gates (Kent St.) will face Hakeem Olajuwon, Kenny Smith and Rick Fox. –SI.com.
That works for me. I personally would like to see more NFL guys playing basketball; they’re natural athletes, and for some of the younger rank-and-file guys, it would be another couple of paychecks in the offseason. Somebody make this happen. Because we could certainly use a pro basketball with a meaningful regular season. We don’t have any of those in America.
