As you might figure, NBA player sign plenty of autographs and some have gotten interesting requests over the years for their signage.
Recently, Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post asked a couple of Wizards players about their strange autograph requests and the ultimate winner came from starting center Marcin Gortat:
“The craziest thing I had to sign. You really wanna know?” he said. “Well, obviously all different parts of the body. Abs, hands, arms, head. I recently signed a forehead of a freshly born baby, which was ridiculous. And I said, ‘Why would you want to do that?’ and the lady said, ‘It’s gonna be a sign he’s gonna be a basketball player.’ So, for some reason, I don’t know why I signed it, why I did it, I felt bad for this kid. But at the end of the day I realized I would never do this again.”
BEST STORY EVER!
