  1. Dont you mean former NBA CELTICS star?

  2. @celtic: Fox was a laker .
    So Fox being on MP means that TheGame is really cancelled? BET isnt renewing it?

  3. Rick Fox played for the Celtics from 91-97, then with the Lakers from 97-04 winning 3 championships. So both above posts are correct. I can’t think of anyone else who’s made the bridge from the NBA to acting, other than the Jordan novelty Space Jam movie, and Shaq’s adverture cartoon (he’s doing well in reality TV.) Rick Fox is a quality talent.

  4. I mean, I could see all this fuss over the guy if he’d led Jersey to the Finals.
