It looks like Rolling Stone is stepping in our arena with a hoop mixtape! The mix that dropped today I'm talking about features some "lost" footage of Super Bowl champ Russell Wilson playing basketball in high school and it's SICK! Actually, the mix is a joke from the music magazine who recently did a nice piece on Wilson called "The Chosen One."
All jokes aside about Wilson's basketball skills (left handed layup!) and 32 inch vert, besides being a great football player during his school days in Richmond, Virginia, he was a pretty good baseball player too.
And he's doing just fine off the court.
FYI, The Chosen One in high school was this guy - who was a much better football player than Wilson was a basketball one.
