How many of you have actually met NBA Players away from the game?

How many of you have actually met NBA Players away from the game? Just like away from the court and in everyday life?

I remember like 5 or 6 years ago, I had a soccer game and during the game, Mark Madsen showed up and was working out at a empty field. After the game everyone met him and he was actually a pretty cool guy. He signed cleats and balls and talked to us. It was cool, even though i dont know if you would call Madsen a "NBA" player. haha

Another story is a few weeks ago me and YupYup saw Jonny Flynn at our local lifetime. He was on 1 court dressed in the video game suits that they use to get realistic motion. There were camera guys filming him and the court was roped off. I didnt actually meet him, but it was still pretty cool.

Anyone have any stories?

I saw Gilbert Arenas at the

I saw Gilbert Arenas at the mall a few years ago back when he was at the top of his game and still known as Agent Zero and Hibachi. I got him to authograph my shirt and I got some free gear, too for being first in line at a new Adidas store. I was gonna get him to sign my shoes but then I realized I was wearing my Lebrons......

I met Clarence Weatherspoon

I met Clarence Weatherspoon when I was a kid when he came to my neighbordhood park for some summer program the sixers were running. I got to shake hands with Jerry Stackhouse when he was at a mall in NJ for the release of a new sixers uniform when he was with them. Met the L train Lionel Simmons when I worked delivering furniture at high school, we delivered a bedroom set to his house. I've seen mega bust Bo Kimble in my neighborhood a few times, I think he does some social work or something now.

Christian Laettner lived on

Christian Laettner lived on the 15th hole at our country club back when he played for the Wolves. My dad and I were golfing when I was younger and we let him and his foursome play through. I thought it was the coolest thing ever at the time.

I have not met an NBA player

I have not met an NBA player face-to-face, but I was in my firends neighborhood in Maryland, and he showed me a house and said that Steve Francis' agent lives there, and nobody was home, so we started playing on the basketball on the agent's house.

And he's not an NBA player, but my older brother knows Austin Freeman's sister, REAL well. Naw' what I mean?

Honestly, it's not hard to catch players in Houston..
My friend saw Jordan Hill last week at Galleria in downtown Houston.
My other friend saw McGrady during the Summer at the Airport, lol.
My uncle met Carl Landry at freaking Costco...
My mom's boss met Hakeem at some convention.

My Cousin (DJ White) is a NBA

My Cousin (DJ White) is a NBA player. We grew up and went to the same schools together. He used to take up for me when I got bullied on the bus back in elementary school. He was much bigger than everyone, so people respected him just because of that. I haven't seen him in a min because he doesn't come into town much, but I did catch him doing some conditioning down here when I was doing some conditioning for track and field. Man, I wish he could go somewhere else, and get some playing time. I think he would be a decent role player for a team somewhere...

MA$E

I met Anthony Ma$on at the rural movie theater by my house.....he was in a limo with a massive entourage and have no clue what he was doing here.....seemed like an odd place for him to be in the middle of the season.....but anyways right on cue he signed and autograph for my boy (like 22 years old at the time) and then proceeded to spurn a 10 year old kid.....
