Thurl Bailey | Mormon Basketball Player

Thurl Bailey is a famous Mormon basketball player who came to the religion later in his life. After winning the hearts and minds of fans for his plays with the Utah Jazz, Bailey would often be presented with gifts, such as the Book of Mormon, in an attempt to sway the celebrity basketball player to the faith. They eventually succeeded, but not before Bailey had famously collected nearly sixty copies during speaking events.
