‘The Lost Russell Wilson Basketball Mixed Tape’ Is Everything You Expect

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was famously drafted twice by major league baseball teams—the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and Colorado Rockies in 2010.

But there was a third sport on the two-time Pro Bowler's platter back in high school, one that isn't at all publicized in comparison to his exploits in football and baseball: basketball.

Though now thanks to The Rolling Stone's releasing this footage of Wilson balling in his high school days, I think we can deduce why we never hear so much about Wilson's hoops career.

Layup! Bounce pass! Charge drawn!

If that's the best Collegiate School could come up with, there's a reason this "mixed tape" was lost.

Wilson probably hoped it'd stay that way.
