Straight talk homey: Moss had dreams to play in the NBA


Randy Moss. What a star he was when he played for the Vikings (1998-2004).

But what if Moss had taken a different path to professional sports?

Luckily, for NFL fans, it didn't happen, but Moss definitely thought about his chances of becoming a professional basketball player.

"I had hopes and dreams to play in the NBA," Moss said during a FOX Sports segment called "Straight Talk Homey." I think I went to a camp in Chicago and met Kevin Garnett and Shea Cotton and a couple others guys... so they made my decision to be a football player very easy, but hey...(laughter) don't let this old age fool you... I can still get down, now."

The name of the segment is a branch off the phrase "straight cash homey," which Moss made famous when a reporter asked him how he paid his fines.
