Not me, but my uncle moved from down to Atlanta to work for Turner and is really high up in the company and at the time they stilled owned the Hawks and he got the companies courtside seats all the time. When they moved down there they didn't sell their house in CT, instead they rented it out and one of the people who rented it was Allan Houston when he first went to the Knicks, everything of course was handled through lawyers do they had never met.

The Knicks were in town playing the Hawks and he was sitting courtside, during warmups he walked up to Houston and just goes, "so how're you treating my house?" hahahaha

My buddy grew up in Sergei Federov's old house, they bought it from him

Also have a friend who bought the house Nick Foles' parents bought in East Lansing after he transferred to Arizona from MSU

not picking on you zona, just saying that most of these replies have drifted far from the topic of "personally knowing" someone famous

Worked for Elvin Hayes (bball) at a Ford dealership he owned in Crosby,TX my senior year of high school. Laid back guy but stingy as hell. Never did get a raise, lol.

Also grew up with Slim Thug when he first started rapping and signed with Swisha House. Miss those days it was a party every weekend.

is this thread still goin? lol

Tim Dobbins..LB, currently Houston Texans..might have seen him make some plays Monday night after Cushing went out with injury.

We played together in high school..he was a year behind i believe..went to State my senior year..he also played FB.

I dont know them "as friends"; but have hung out with both Golden Tate and his brother Wesley (Vandy RB/WR) at a condo i used to work security for.

Speaking of said work....Titans head coach Mike Munchak's daughter lives there, country musician Chris Young. Also got to meet Jason Todd (lead singer of Buckcherry)..and man is his artwork (tats) even more impressive in person.

At another hotel working security...the head writers for TNA wrestling would come in every week or so to write scripts: Vince Russo and Ed Ferarra...as must crap as the 'wrestling insiders" give them, they sure were down to earth when i saw them/interacted with them.

On the same note...met several of the TNA talent while they were staying there for shows/meetings. the Pope is huuuuge in person, compared to what he looks like on screen. Also delivered luggage personally to both Eric Bischoff and Jeff Jarrett who both left nice tips that werent required.

Also got to meet the Broken Lizard comedy troup (SuperTroopers, Beerfest, etc). They were staying at the hotel during their stop for their comedy tour at the time..and spent the night eating/drinking/hanging out at the restaurant/bar that was partof the hotel.
