8. Todd McCulloch – Pinball
Moving from the NBA to pinball is totally natural, right? Ok, no, it’s not, but it’s a transition that McCulloch has made easily. It looked like he was on course to have a fantastic career in basketball, but then a neuromuscular disorder in his feet forced him to retire. It was a shame, but McCulloch had a backup plan.
This man adores pinball. To sum up, he loves it so much that he has 60 pinball machines in his house. He won the 2011 Pinball Expo in Chicago, beating world champions in the process. According to McCulloch, it gives him the same rush of excitement as playing basketball. We’ll take his word for it.
