Cliff Alexander was such a star H.S. basketball recruit … one cop remembered him during the former NBA player’s gun arrest this month — and the interaction was all caught on police video obtained by TMZ Sports. Alexander was pulled over at around 9:30 PM CT on May 6 in Chicago, Ill. after cops say he blew through a stop sign … and shortly after, one officer realized who exactly he had detained. “Oh, you’re that hooper!” the cop said, before asking him about his high school recruiting ranking.

Cops also say Alexander admitted to having weed on him … and claim they found a “clear plastic bag” with a green substance in it when they searched him. Alexander, who cops say does NOT have a concealed carry license — was arrested and booked on a felony charge of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was also hit with a citation for failing to stop at a stop sign — but he was NOT booked on drug charges. Jail records show the 6-foot-9, 245-pound basketball player was released from custody late Thursday afternoon.

But, Cliff Alexander says, technology has helped make the life of an American professional in Europe much easier. (This is an improvement from the years before smartphones and Skype — players kept in touch with family via the phone and missed out on the video aspect of contact.) Alexander’s daughter is old enough to know who he is and calls him “Dada.” She talks to him through FaceTime and visited him in November with help from the club. “It just motivates me more over here,” says Alexander, who plays for Le Mans in France. “It makes me want to go all in on this. As long as she knows and I know that I’m over here trying to provide for her, it’s OK.”
