It’s officially almost Halloween, and with that comes the ever-daunting threat of a zombie takeover. Of course, a zombie invasion isn’t a real threat, at least as of now. But imagine if society broke down into zombie-fueled chaos. Hordes of the undead were taking over humanity faster than could be controlled, and you needed help fending off zombie after zombie.
So today, we’re going to imagine that the situation has got that bad – with a sports twist. In this case, which star athletes would you want by your side during a zombie outbreak? We’re going to look at the elite sports stars who could help you by offering something different. A lot of them have proven they simply possess guns but some have unusual skills that would make them very useful if a zombie came knocking. Check out the list below.
Ibaka has been in the NBA long enough to have veteran status. The Congolese star spent most of his career with the Oklahoma City Thunders before famously winning an NBA Championship with the Toronto Raptors. This seven-foot giant is one of the best athletes in the NBA.
Overcoming adversity comes naturally to Ibaka. Raised in a warzone, he even saw his father become a political prisoner. After fleeing to France and then Spain he learned the language and became an elite basketball player. He’s proven he’ll do whatever it takes to survive, so he would be an asset during a zombie invasion.
