Who Would Be a Better NBA Player? Gates Or T.O.

Chris FordContributor IFebruary 23, 2009

Okay i've never heard this one before so it was just an idea that came to mind

Terrell Owens

2 celebrity all star MVP awards

Starter for University of Tennessee-Chattanooga

NCAA Tournament appearance in 1995

6'3", 218 lbs. (shooting guard size I'd say)

Antonio Gates

Played college basketball for two different teams. See stats below.

6'4", 260 lbs. (undersized small forward maybe?)

Well they obviously have the experience to be there and many have wondered how they would do in the NBA. I would prefer Owens because who knows how long its been since Gates played basketball.

Whats your opinion?
