It might be that they don't look very good being defended by Scalabrine, but I swear they could have picked better amateurs to play him. The guys were okay, but I see better talent on a nightly basis at the OSU main rec center (RPAC). Or at least in our intramural leagues. The first guy was pretty good though. If he would have hit his open jumpshots he would have had a chance.

From the article:

the first challenger, Matt Tomaszewski, was on Syracuse's roster just last season Scalabrine owned everyone.
It doesn't say who the other challengers were, however.

Only watched the first game and man that kid was bad.

How many fall away or deep 3's are you going to try. Guy was a stick too, Scal just backed him up to the basket. He could have won that game if he had any kind of a jump shot

I'm thinking those guys at the rec center wouldn't look much better against an NBA player. Hard to fathom the talent these guys have who play in the NBA if you've never played against them. The guys he owned in this video are probably very, very good. Like someone said, the first guy played for Syracuse.

Did the first guy actually 'play' for Syracuse? I doubt it.

no muscle, no jump shot and no basketball intelligence. Made a few inside shots and then starting chucking from the outside

I think he played some limited minutes. Does it really matter though? He was still on their roster, which is an achievement in itself.

My bad dude. He was on the roster. I highly doubt they let scrubs on a high major division one team.

Do you follow college basketball?

There are 2-5 players on every team (including the top teams in the country) who couldn't even start for their high school teams.

They're called walk-on's, also known as practice players

Guys who just want to be apart of the team, who are willing and able to go 100% all the time in practice and know they'll never get into a game.

That is an awesome story, and I got to experience that first hand myself. When I was in 9th/10th grade I was a really nasty basketball player and got the opportunity to workout for a week each Summer with Greg Grant Greg Grant NBA & ABA Stats | Basketball-Reference.com.

I was so pumped but I figured, how good could he be, I basically handle all the kids I face and even out with the other good PGs. Hahahaha what a joke! This guy ran circles around me. Circles...

The guy still to this day runs about 8 miles a day. So his stamina was insane and his shot was insane and my best skill was my speed and he was twice as fast as I was and this was in 1997-8 several yrs after he retired.

Every day at the end he would play 1 on 1 with me and I'd practice the skills he taught me, I'd say the average game was 11-2 11-3 tops.

Yeah you would be surprise how not good players on the end of D1 benches are (especially some of the tall guys). Now I'm not saying they are bad and they were probably very competent and decent high school players. But in the scheme of things they just aren't that good.

Like someone said, the best they could find was a bench warming big man from a D1 school? I just think they could have found better.

there are people better than that guy and there are a few non nba guys better than nba guys but not many. even an old nba vet/retired player will destroy most very good streetball or college level guys. the worst player on an nba roster goes to the d-league and will score like 19/game against ex college stars.

I guess I don't really care how good this guy was college or how many minutes he played, but just from watching that video, he's not a smart player and had he stayed inside could have made a game out of it

Nope, not at all. Is San Francisco still the dominate team?

Meh.. Wasn't too impressed by Scalabrine's game.. he just knew how to use his size. Definitely substandard stroke/skills for a solid NBA player, but its his basketball smarts that got him to where he is.

yea but thats like half the battle, having smarts, hustling. Let's not forget this is a skilled guy, lead USC in scoring and was among the PAC-10 leaders offensively in college. Clearly he wasn't a great NBA player but compared to average Joe, he's a beast. Most people aren't 6'9" 240 and smart on the court. I never expected to see a white Iverson, I expected him to shoot J's, play good D and bang his way to a victory.
