These two are my favourites, magic johnson and Nathaniel Clifton. Nathaniel Clifton goes back in history, he was an outstanding baseball player in high school. An American multi-sport Athlete.
He joined the army and went to world war two, he loved soft-drinks so much he was nicknamed 'sweetwater', after the war he joined the new New York Rens an all- black proffessional basketball team, one season later he played for the Harlem Globe Trotters.
During the off-season he played baseball for Chicago American Giants.
Still a talented baseball first baseman, his exceptional ball handling ability led him to be the first African American player to sign a contract with an NBA. New York Knicks....... already 27 yrs old he helped the team into its first ever appearance in the NBA.
