Even if the NFL has been a lot more successful at moving past its lockout and having an actual season than the NBA has, the members of the two leagues are constantly intermingling, be it on the sidelines of courts and fields or away from their respective playing surface in a variety of social scenes. And as we’ve shown you in the past, many footballers began their athletic careers playing hoops, while plenty of NBAers made noise on the gridiron before they found a home on the hardwood. So with the NFL season in full swing, here’s a look at a bunch of your favorite bballers (past and present) posing with some of football’s best (also, part and present) in a host of different settings. Apologies for the heavy Terrell Owens presence, but TO’s ability to get in front of the camera alongside professional basketball players is simply unparalleled.
