That Time My Mom Met: Nene Hilario

My parents decided to take a vacation to Colorado in the summer of 2009.  I don’t remember all the places they went to, but when they got back, I got a call from my mom:
Mom:  I saw a basketball player in Colorado and took a picture with him.
Me: Really? Do you know who it was?
Mom: No.
Me: Then how do you know he was even a professional athlete?
Mom:  He seemed like one.  A very tall and strong black guy.  So I asked to take a picture with him.  He asked me if I knew who he was, I said 'I don’t know, but my kids will know.'
Me: That’s a bit racist of you, Mom.
Mom: No it's not.  Do you want to see the picture or not?
Me: Ok fine.  Just e-mail it to me.
She e-mailed me the picture below:
Mrs. Chow and Nene Hilario
If I am not mistaken, I am pretty sure my mom is standing next to Nene Hilario.  Unfortunately, this was after the Dallas Mavericks (my home team) were defeated 4-1 by the Denver Nuggets in the playoffs, so I told her she took a picture with the enemy.  She didn’t care.

My mom met some guy on a plane once who claimed to be an NBA player, but he said his name was Kevin Brown.
