38 Celebrities Who Played High School Basketball

25,962 views 38 items
Celebrities who played high school basketball include some of our favorite actors, singers, rappers and other famous people who spent their high school days on the basketball court. Just like the celebrities who played high school football, all of these stars might have once wanted to go pro in hoops but definitely saw success with their other talents.

Though some might say that actors make bad basketball players, Hollywood's finest like George Clooney, Tom Selleck, Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington all did quite well on their high school basketball teams as did other showbiz stars like Jamie Foxx, Beau Bridges, David Duchovny and Michael Clarke Duncan. The same goes from actors such as Edward Norton, Jason Segel and Jim Caviezel.

Singers and rappers also got in on the prep basketball action with the likes of Master P, his son Romeo, R. Kelly, The Game and Mase enjoying their high school days with some basketball. Even Prince was a star on the court as a teen.

But it's not just famous male celebrities who played high school basketball. Pop singer Britney Spears and actress Renee Zellweger spent their time in high school as a member of their school's basketball team. Not bad, ladies, not bad at all.
