It looks like John Edwards is not above talking a little trash about his basketball skills.
A cover story in the August issue of Esquire includes a passage about Edwards boasting to Kwame Asante, the state director of the Louisiana NAACP, about beating former UNC star Raymond Felton, now a point guard for the Charlotte Bobcats, in a game of H-O-R-S-E.
"You haven't heard this story, have you, Kwame?" Edwards asked.
"Never," Kwame confirmed, smiling broadly, both hands on the wheel.
Edwards rubbed his own hands together with exaggerated delight. "I loooove finding people who never heard this story!"
Edwards then told Asante about his moment of basketball glory, when he beat Felton at H-O-R-S-E.
