Rick Fox Talks 'Dancing' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Despite having just achieved his best scores yet (including a 10), Rick Fox was the surprise elimination from week 7 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' The former pro basketball player and partner Cheryl Burke talked about the experience on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC).

After Jimmy Kimmel chided him for crying on national television, the host noted, "You said that this is harder than Game 7 of an NBA final? ... First of all, I don't think you've been in a Game 7, right?"

Right. Technically, Fox has only gotten as far as the Western Conference finals. But "I prepared for that," he explained. Concerning 'Dancing,' "I had no previous dance experience ... You don't know how to dance, and you have to learn it really quickly and perform it in front of America four days later."

Kimmel then chatted with Burke about dancing with the "freakishly tall" (6-foot-7) Fox.
