Donovan McNabb trades football for basketball in Ultimate Hoops League

    You’re not going to beat Donovan McNabb in football or basketball. Maybe give hockey a go.

    But the news that the former Eagles player has signed onto a Minnesota basketball team pretty much guarantees he’s better than you at sports. McNabb is playing Ultimate Hoops in St. Louis Park, Minn.

    Never heard of Ultimate Hoops?

    “The Ultimate Hoops organization is a sports entertainment company dedicated to providing a professional, lifelong basketball experience to its members.” It’s a perfect fit for McNabb, who played football and basketball in college, and played part of the 2011 NFL season with the Minnesota Vikings.

    He’s jersey No. 5 for the league’s Most Dominant Ever team and will play forward. Deadspin has photos of last night’s game.
