A Somewhat Beefy Donovan McNabb Plays Pickup Basketball with Tyreke Evans in New Jersey

No one wanted Donovan McNabb. To play quarterback, at least. Former Five is, however, doing work for the NFL Network and, on Thursdays, is a weekly guest on Daily News Live (he’s even doing promos for it!). But he’s not getting paid to play football. So, it seems, he’s keeping in shape by playing his second love, basketball.

This winter, it was brought to the world’s attention that McNabb was playing mens league bball in Minnesota. Now? Pickup games with staff and Tyreke Evans at Nexxt Level Sports, in Voorhees. 

In just the first minute of this video, taken last week at the New Jersey sports complex, we see that McNabb’s post moves and corner jumper are in top form, but that his footwork on defense leaves much to be desired. Oh yeah, and something about a soaking wet wife beater, too. Jump it.

    *When we first heard that Mike Vick had gone through nearly $30 million since his 2008 bankruptcy filing, we thought we’d have to add his name to ever growing list of (black) athletes who blow their fortunes.
    However, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback has a happy ending in store. Just read on.
    Michael Vick has blown through nearly $30 million since filing for bankruptcy in 2008 — nearly 95% of his total income, TMZ has learned.
    According to legal docs filed in his bankruptcy case, Vick made $31 million since he went belly up — that includes his Eagles salary and various endorsements and other business ventures.
    The math is pretty simple — Vick had to pay a total of $29.6 mil — of that, $10.9 went to taxes, $9.2 mil went to creditors, $2.7 went to lawyers and accountants, and the rest is for various things, including child support and living expenses.
    All tolled, Vick is now left with around $1.5 mil. That’s nothing to sneeze at, but considering what he made it’s pretty shocking.
    So there you have it, but as we said at the top, things are not all bad for Vick. He signed a 6 year, $100 million contract in 2011 with almost $40 mil in guaranteed money. Not to worry, he won’t be poor — in rich terms — for much longer

    McNabb worth millions still making 6 figures,living in a mansion with his wife and kids while you haters are broke,barely employed and probably owe thousands in student loans.
    No wonder why you lames want McNabb to feel as miserable as you losers do,your life sucks.

    Best quarterback in Eagles history, and this fanbase takes any chance they can to shit on him. Guess this is what Schmidt went through as a Phillie.

  • 10 Finger Lenny October 4, 2012 at 7:48 am
