Here's video of George St. Pierre playing basketball, and he's pretty damn good

I'm sure some of you are thinking, draining a pair of free throws does not constitute "good."

That said, please understand I've always wanted to be good at basketball and well, despite having the height and athleticism, I just couldn't jump. Or shoot, or pass, or dribble.

Other than that, I was great.

So that's why I'm easily impressed by former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, who shoots some hoops in advance of the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, which will be held inside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada, home of the Toronto Raptors.

As for St. Pierre?

He's still enjoying his hiatus from mixed martial arts (MMA) while the division moves on without him. Though his protege could be next in line to wear the 170-pound crown, depending on what happens here.

We goin' Sizzler...
