My basketball career ended when I snapped my tibia and fibula while playing rec league basketball. If I would have known that was going to happen then of course I wouldn’t have played — or I wouldn’t have played that hard.

I’m thinking that two-time NBA champ Luke Walton and Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart should read this blog so the same doesn’t happen to them.

In the video above, you’ll see Walton and Leinart teaming up in your normal run-of-the-mill rec league. The worst part about this video is that their team lost. It is interesting to see the opponents just jacking threes and draining them. It’s also really interesting to watch how hard Walton plays.

Have you ever been lucky enough to play a recreational sport against a former/current professional athlete?
