Bolts Buzz 9/9: Antonio Gates Talks Hoops

Some news and notes from the players and around the league about the Chargers.

Did you know Antonio Gates played basketball?  Shocking news, right?  Though this Charger's fun fact gets brought up during most telecasts, rarely does number 85 actually talk about his former sport.  The future Hall of Famer joined Above the Rim on SiriusXM NBA Radio on Thursday to discuss why he transferred from Michigan State and if he still has reservations about not pursuing a career on the court.

We know Kenny Wiggins and Jason Verrett both have apparel lines, but Brandon Mebane is bringing some gear to San Diego fans.  Mebane has men's and women's tanks and tees for sale and looks like you'll get a little something extra if you place your order soon.
