HAYDEN Crozier and Lachie Neale continue to spread the AFL love during their off-season break in the US.

After impressing NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, the Fremantle pair has met up with some of the best current basketballers in the world, including 2014 NBA MVP Steph Curry.

Curry received a quick lesson on how to kick and handball a Sherrin from the Docker duo, not quite handling the football as well as he does a basketball.

Neale was humbled to meet his NBA idol, along with Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant.

Since their trip started in October, the pair watched a New York Rangers-Arizona Coyotes NHL match.

They also had lunch with Charlotte Hornets players Jeremy Lin and Cody Zeller.


They also toured the TNT studios during a broadcast of the NBA half-time show, which Crozier got a mention from four-time NBA champion O’Neal on air.
