Posted May 15, 2017

The Raiders wide receivers make their money catching touchdowns on Sunday, but they recently took to the basketball court to show off their hoop skills as well.

Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree

Before Michael Crabtree was hauling in touchdown passes from Derek Carr on Sundays, the Oakland Raiders wide receiver was one of the top basketball prospects in the state of Texas, with dreams of playing both basketball and football collegiately.

Well, “King Crab” eventually decided to stick with football – a pretty good decision if you ask me – but he still has something left on the basketball court, something he made sure to show ESPN’s Sam Alipour.

 Crabtree, along with a handful of his offensive teammates, recently played a pickup game with Alipour, discussing a wide variety of topics in between buckets, ranging from the fan support for the Silver and Black, to which member of the Golden State Warriors would make the best football player.

The two teams even had a friendly bet contingent on the outcome of the game, so check out the segment below to see which team came out on top.
