Finishing her journey on the snow, former Alpine Skiing Queen Lindsey Vonn has lately been spotted around the basketball court. Recently Vonn attended the 2023 NBA Ruffles All-Star Celebrity game. The event took place at the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake. However, instead of just sitting in the stands and watching the game, Vonn was an active part of one of the playing teams.

Lindsay was present as the assistant coach of Dwyane Wade‘s Team Wade. After the event, Vonn took to her social media handle to share photos and videos from the event. Her latest photo story was an appreciation post for the giant basketball players towering over her. But, who were these giants that made the 5’ 10″ tall skier look small?

Earlier today, 4x Skiing World Champion Lindsey Vonn shared a photo with the Antetokounmpo brothers on her Instagram story. In the photo, she looked tiny next to the nearly 7 feet giants. Acknowledging that fact, she wrote in the caption, “I really appreciate how small I look 😆.”

Next to average humans, with a height of 5’10”, Vonn undoubtedly belongs to the ‘tall girl’ category. However, standing next to the Antetokounmpo brothers, she looked nothing but small. The photo featured the 6’11” tall ‘Greek Freak’ Giannis Antetokounmpo on one side of Vonn. Next to him was his brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo who is 6’7″ tall.

On the other side of Vonn was their third brother, Alex Antetokounmpo. His height is 6’8″. Looking at their heights, it makes sense why Vonn looked tiny next to these brothers. She is nearly a foot shorter than all three. While this was one photo from the event, a few days ago, Vonn shared several photos and videos from the event.

Vonn’s coach mode was on

On 17th February 2023, Vonn posted some photos on Instagram that showed her in sync with her new role. Among the others, one photo featured Vonn seriously taking part in discussions about the team’s game plan. A video showed how quickly the skier switched from a happy chatty onlooker to a strict assistant coach. Other photos were of Vonn with different celebrities including the Antetokounmpo brothers.

Soon after Vonn shared the post, people from the sports fraternity appreciated Vonn’s new role. This included the Swimming king Michael Phelps, team coach Dwyane Wade, teammate Frances Tiafoe, etc. Her experience from the event and praise from her friends and fans made Vonn wonder if she has found herself a new career path in this post-retirement era.
