The New Orleans Saints' players have made a habit of breaking NFL records in the last couple of weeks. A week after Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke the NFL record for most touchdown passes in NFL history, Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas broke the single-season record for most receptions in the NFL. Among the many players congratulating Michael Thomas on his record-breaking feat, few would have expected a 15-time NBA All-Star to be in the mix.
