Antonio Brown is a black hole on the hardwood

Karl Walter

Several Steelers players recently participated in a charity basketball game, and Antonio Brown did his best Kobe impression, minus the made shots.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, by some accounts, turned into a black hole.

The term is used for a basketball player who gets the ball and shoots, despite percentages. According to freelance writer Tyler Kimmel, that was the best way to describe Brown's performance at a charity basketball game last week at California University of Pennsylvania.

There's no particular value in this story, just some entertaining comments about Brown, and his teammates, Robert Golden, Ross Ventrone, Chris Carter, Mortty Ivy, Kelvin Beachum and Alameda Ta'amu.

Proceeds from the game went to the Jeanie Carter Scholarship Fund. The Steelers defeated the CalU All-Stars 86-59.

Teams around the NFL will put on shows like this in their particular regions. I've been to one of them, done by the Vikings, when I was in college. There, I got to D up future Ravens center Matt Birk as well as local legend Jim Kleinsasser.

I may have been able to take Birk off the dribble (may not be true), but Kleinsasser was a total freak.

The Trib Review has a picture of Golden dunking, which is kind of cool considering he's listed as 5-foot-11.

Brown also took the entire Clairton football team to Dave and Busters because he was supposed to go to their banquet, but a scheduling conflict prevented it. Brown's definitely playing the part of the community guy within Steeler Nation, so it deserves mentioning here.
