Yes, we played soccer with the star center for the Denver Nuggets out in front of our house at Wash Park. Weighing in at 250 lbs, 6'11" - he was pretty good. I gave him an assist for a goal, with at least 100 people watching on the sidelines of our pick-up-in-the-park game. I suppose makes sense - as he's from Brazil - here's his profile: http://www.nba.com/playerfile/nene/
