And then I read this and there was doubt in my mind that most fo my friends that were talking won't even score a basket against any NBA players.

14min and 25sec mark: FINALLY!Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
its when they finally have an athletic black guy going at Scal. The other two were caucasian.
^this same situation happened when Joe Kleine (the 90's tall caucasian NBA stiff) showed up at the Providence College Basketball summer camp I went to in the early 90's. The thing is though Joe Kleine was a fucking muscular scary assed 6'11" monster still in his prime - compared to the soft looking retired Scalabrine.
the thing I remember is when kleine would rebound he'd naturally slap the ball when grabbing it. it was so loud and scary and violent - that in retrospect I think klein may have been taking steroids. he was rebounding like that even with one on one when he didn't have to.
He just out physical-ed the top players (3 of which when to division 1 schools) and even the Providence college players. He then had a shooting contest with Eric Murdock (1st round pick of the Jazz - and possible "john stockton successor "
). They were hitting half court shots using regular shooting form and bank shot threes from the baselines.Edited by LawrenceMD - 1/23/13 at 6:18am
