Well here’s something you don’t see every day: A former NFL superstar playing basketball for a Twin Cities rec league. Not a hoax. Donovan McNabb suited up for Most Dominant Ever of Ultimate Hoops Minnesota. Like a fat, old Ricky Rubio, McNabb gave Most Dominant Ever a huge boost off the bench, scoring 14 points with 10 rebounds and 3 assists. As this description from the Ultimate Hoops Minnesota Facebook page shows, McNabb would ultimately be the game’s hero:
The MDE/Rockets rivalry has officially started! MDE wins a nail-bitter with free agent superstar Donavon McNabb hitting a “And 1” with 13 seconds left to give MDE the go ahead bucket! Now the squads are 1-1 in head-to-head competition!
That’s probably more exclamation points than a description of Donovan McNabb scoring a bucket and a free throw to win a Twin Cities rec league game deserves, but what the hell. Let Donovan have his shining moment. God knows he didn’t have many with the Vikings. Check out more photos of McNabb’s scintillating Ultimate Hoops Minnesota debut. Last note: The game took place at Life Time Fitness in St. Louis Park. Donovan is a fixture down there now. So are a lot of other chubby dudes with no legs.
