Josh McCown Not Bad At HoopsApril 19th, 2014
Joe posted the following vidoe yesterday with some fans believing there is something sinister lurking in the background. Not true. All cool.
This NFL-sanctioned video shows Anquan Boldin of the 49ers holding a charity basketball game in his hometown of Pahokee (FSU types will get a kick out of his interaction with a young Gators fan). Among the two NFL players featured in the video is Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall and Bucs quarterback Josh McCown.
Of course, Connor Barth was lost for the 2013 season for blowing an Achilles playing hoops. Some fans thought McCown was breaking some kind of a rule playing in the game. Joe did a modicum of checking, and no, McCown is good.
First, again, this video is sanctioned by the NFL. Think they would put together a video like this to promote how players give back to the community if one of at least three subjects of the video is breaking some sort of team rule?
Second, the NFL, if not the Bucs, encourages players to be good citizens in the public eye like this, as they are not skydiving or racing motorcycles or something inherently dangerous.
Also, for a guy with limited wheels, McCown seems to know what he is doing on the basketball court.
