Rapper Nelly is among the characters in a new basketball video game - even though he was never a great hoops star.

The HOT IN HERRE hitmaker is one of the animated stars in NBA STREET STARS VOLUME 2, which is released next week (29APR03), but he admits he's puzzled at his inclusion.

He says, "I'm thrilled. It's cool but I was never a great baller.

"I played in high school and I was on the team, but I was much more of a football and baseball player."

Nelly isn't the only rap star making a name for himself in the sports computer game world - Method Man, Redman and DMX are among the characters in new wrestling game DEF JAM VENDETTA.
