Leinart even drew praise from former NBA player Olden Polynice:

Nike sponsors the Drew League, which is a highly competitive pro-am league in Los Angeles. It’s possible they got Leinart into the game. Or maybe Leinart’s game is just sharp from playing ball with Luke Walton:
Leinart played baseball in addition to football growing up, and he recently said he considered himself a baseball player entering high school. Clearly he’s talented and good at multiple sports.
And what a day for 2006 NFL top 10 picks! Leinart playing in a basketball summer league, and Vince Young pretty much saying he’s retired. At least Reggie Bush and Mario Williams are still making it happen.
