1. Kobe Bryant..
King of basketball.. it was very cool to see him play.. He reminds me aLOT of his "airness". Kobe in the game i saw him play actually missed the game tying bucket with no time left.. Orlando won..Artest did his hair like dennis rodman for the game.. maybe ya'll will remember.. my virus protector is keeping me from posting the pic..
he looked like Dru hill with the blonde hair and he had japanese writing covering his dome..
2. Tim Duncan
I saw San Antonio play ATL at Phillips arena.. which i must say is a bad as.s indoor stadium.. Tim Duncan actually missed the game winning bucket down by 1 with no time left or lil left.. pretty wild.. Tim Dunan is arguably the best powerforward ever.. I'm not a huge fan of his swag but he's the sh8t..
3. Peyton Manning.. I saw Manning expose the Jaguars in Alltell on MNF.. This is when Bob Sanders was tearing heads with his hits.. Manning did nothing but prove to me even more that he's hall of fame material..
4. James Toney.. legend in the boxing ring.. known more for his smack talk..You can't diss the guy's skills tho.. he's won 72 professional boxing matches.. lets just forget that he fought Randy Couture.. lmao..When i attended the Sam Peter vs James Toney 2 fight.. I saw some celebrities and atheletes.. ; Hulk Hogan, Fat Joe, Bernard Hopkins, Shaquille O' Neal, Shannon Briggs, and even ANNA nicole smith.. Here's the catch.. the venue i saw the fight at in Hollywood Florida is called the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel.. it's on an indian reservation so you can actually gamble in FL.. keeping it short.. Anna Nicole Smith died two weeks later at the same venue i saw her at.. I guess she was staying there at the casino the whole time.. pretty weird..
my honorable mention: (sprts evnt)
now this doesn't really go with the best athletes i've seen, but this event i went to was the CRAZIEST sports event i've ever witnessed..
Kimbo Slice vs Seth Petruzella
There was so much hype around Kimbo.. Kimbo was SUPPOSED to fight Ken Shamrock..We didn't know Ken wasn't fighting till we got to the arena.. they announced it on the microphone during the prelim fights .. everybody boo'd their ass off with that news.. so, you know, we were thinking Kimbo either wasn't going to fight or Kimbo was going to fight a scrub.. either way.. Seth steps up and takes the fight.. I had no idea who he was at this point.. he comes out and everybody thinks Kimbo has this fight under wraps.. I remember right before the bell they were passing out Kimbo flyers you could hold up... 14 seconds later.. those were on the ground collecting dirt.. I've never been to Vegas but it's easily the most fake boobies and ala mode i'd ever sEEN.. Brooke Hogan was in attendance w/ her pops and Tito Ortiz was there too..tito was doing his free agency bid on Elite XC at the time.. pretty wild event to say the least..
1 more thing..pretty funny
On the way down from GA to the fight(ELITE XC) we stopped at Jupiter beach to stay the night..We knew Dan Henderson the following day was having a signing at the West Palm beach mall.. can't remember the name of it.. we go there the next day and.. anyways, we sat there in line hung over as all get out for 2 hours waiting on Hendo and "STICH" .. Hendo finally arrives.. I finally get up to Hendo for the signing and the picture.. I'm small talking with him and I say,"Man, i'm hoping there is an upset with this Kimbo/Ken fight", he says, lmao," Who would be the upset?" I said," I hope Ken can pull it out" lmao.. I think i kinda pissed him off with that comment.. that's when all the mma regulars were bashing Kimbo's quick fame with no real victories..Dan Hendo looked at me funny like i was stupid.. Either way.. he was backing up his boi Ken, he wasn't feeling the whole KIMBO thing.. lmao.. Stich.. now that guy is cool as sh8t.. soo chill.. what a job he has .. if you don't know who i'm talking about.. he's the cut man i guess that does most mma fights and boxing fights.. you have seen him in your lifetime if you've ever watched any fights.. trust me..
lil bit of pch'es memorey lane here.. hope ya'll enjoyed.. i'm sure Yoda will read this and say," damn, pch talking about Kimbo AGAIN", lol
