Another guy who used to play college hoops but started playing basketball was Sting.
"Steve attended a Junior College in California, the College of Canyons, where he played basketball. Steve has stated that he should have played football, as it was what he was best at. However, Steve still likes to play hoops when he gets a chance. "

I believe Horace Grant would have made a decent wrestler ... If I remember correctly, he did an interview with "Slam" Magazine (or maybe it was "Inside Stuff" Magazine? Can't remember) where the entire article consisted of his thoughts on the Undertaker and his ability to "command respect" in the ring ... And this was way back in the pre-Ministry days, too.

I know that Shaquille O'Neal (then of the Orlando Magic) accompanied Hulk Hogan to the ring for his first WCW World Title victory back in 1994. I'm uncertain whether or not he actually got into the ring and wrestled, though.
A lot of people don't seem to remember this, but Dennis Rodman's association with Hulk Hogan actually went back a couple of years farther back than when Rodman became a member of the nWo. Rodman, wearing the red and yellow, got physically involved in Hogan's cage match title defense against Vader at Bash at the Beach 1995. He prevented (I believe it was) Kevin Sullivan from interfering in the match. Actually grabbed a chair and threatened Sullivan, if I remember correctly.
Grozit, if Rodman had threatened Sullivan in 1997, he almost certainly would've come out the worse for wear. Many was the time that year when Sullivan and Jacqueline would mercilessly beat the living hell out of some nameless jobber. Sullivan's "wrestling" style more closely resembled street fighting than actual wrestling. He was one dude that I didn't want mad at me.
