Iverson was an eleven-time NBA All-Star and won the All-Star MVP award in 2001 and 2005. For more information about Allen’s career, check out his official website, www.AllenIverson3.net.

Kent retired in 2008 after a 16-year pro baseball career, but told ESPN that he was treated the same as everyone else during the interview process. Although he can’t reveal the outcome, he did say that going into it it “wasn’t a big deal.”

This season the 18 contestants are in the Philippines, and Kent revealed that with his competitive nature and 15-years spent on a Texas ranch in addition to being a hunter and fisherman, he didn’t think being on an island would be all that difficult for him other than the time away from his family.

Brandon Weeden AppearancesCleveland Browns‘ quarterback Brandon Weeden proved that despite being the oldest rookie quarterback in NFL history at 28 years old, he might be one of the most accurate.

On ESPN’s “Sport Science” earlier this year, Weeden showcased his accuracy and velocity by hitting moving clay pigeons with a football, and reportedly his throws were going 48 miles per hour. How his throws will translate into wins on the field remains to be seen, but there is no doubt that he has some amazing skills.

Over Twitter, Weeden told his followers that it took him a little while to hit the first one, but after that he hit four out of five.

Weeden may be an ideal candidate for an Endorsement Deal that showcases a speedy, or accurate, product.

Olympic gold medalist and NBA superstar Kevin Durant has already achieved a number of remarkable accomplishments at just 23-years-old, and now he can add movie star to that long list.

The film “Thunderstruck” hit theaters on Friday, starring the three-time NBA scoring champion as well as Nickelodeon star Taylor Gray, Brandon T. Jackson from “Big Momma’s House” and Jim Belushi. Gray is said to play a Thunder fan whose lack of basketball ability is magically switched with Durant’s All-Star skill set.

Durant remarked, “Not too many people can say they starred in a movie as a basketball player, with a lot of different things they’re juggling, but I’m glad I did it.”

Warner Bros might have gotten a little lucky with their timing of the release of the film as well, with Durant winning the Olympic gold as Team USA’s leading scorer and a little over a month after he played against LeBron James’ Miami Heat for the NBA title.

Durant’s popularity is likely to skyrocket even further after the release of “Thunderstruck” this weekend, with basketball fans and non-fans alike getting up close and familiar with the impressive athlete. He already has a number of Product Endorsement Deals with well-known companies like Sprint, Gatorade and Panini, and many more are sure to come calling over the coming weeks.
