Fresh off his departure from the USC basketball team, actor/rapper Lil’ Romeo wasted no time in getting himself back on the hoops headlines.
At a charity celebrity basketball game hosted by Tennessee Titans’ quarterback Vince Young, Lil’ Romeo was posterized by Denver Nuggets guard J.R. Smith.
Watch the video below. Other athletes and celebrities that took part in the game include rapper Master P, Titans running back Chris Johnson, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes, and NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon.
Former Eagles teammates Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens will participate on the Spike TV show “Pros vs. Joes” and team up with San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates on the basketball court against retired NBA players Hakeem Olajuwon, Kenny Smith, and Rick Fox.
The Eagles made the Super Bowl in 2004 with McNabb and Owens, but Owens was cut midway through the 2005 season during a big debacle between the two.
Gates, Owens, and McNabb all played college basketball, with Gates gaining the most success of the trio. He averaged 20.6 points per game, 7.7 rebounds per game, and 4.4 assists per game his last year of college.
Olajuwon is widely considered as one of the best NBA centers of all-time, while Kenny Smith is a former first round draft pick and is now an analyst on TNT. Rick Fox has shifted his career to Hollywood as an actor after winning three NBA championsips with the Lakers.
The episode of “Pros vs. Joes” will air July 6, 2010 on Spike TV.
