The best celebrity basketball players

There are celebrities out there who can really play the game of basketball, including professional athletes of other sports. When I visited the NBA All Star weekend in Houston recently, I was pleasantly surprised by the number of celebrities who got serious game on the hard court.

Since pro athletes of other sports are paid to stay in shape, it’s not fair to include them. But, just for the record, Mike Vick has the best game that I’ve seen in recent years, and that includes T.O. I saw Vick take a pass on the wing on the fast break, dribble behind his back from the right shoulder, take a single step and slam the ball down with too much ease.

But I digress.

Let’s take a look at the best celebrity basketball players.
