Drew Brees — the greatest-ever New Orleans … Pelican????
Pierre Thomas says that definitely coulda been a thing if Drew never picked up a football … ’cause the ex-Saints running back says his former QB could BALL!!!!
“He can play some basketball — he’s got some skills,” Thomas tells TMZ Sports … “I used to call him White Chocolate.”
Thomas spent 8 seasons with Brees in New Orleans — the two won a Super Bowl together — and Pierre swears the 6-foot QB coulda made a serious run at the NBA.
In fact … Pierre says the dude might’ve had a real shot at the MLB too!!!!!
“Football is not the only gift that man has,” Thomas says … “They got that movie ‘White Man Can’t Jump,’ but no, he can jump!”
We’ve unearthed some footage of Brees with a basketball hoop … and it begs the question — do we believe Pierre????
