This stuff never ceases to amaze me.  What some people call "NBA scrub" is still one of the best basketball players on the earth and will wipe the floor with 99.9999% of us.

looks like basically the same result that happened last time someone challenged Scal

For all his goofiness I watched Scal play at USC and he was a phenomenal college basketball player.

Why does Scal seem to disproportionately participate in these kind of things?

Seems like that fragility he displays in pre and post game shows isn’t a joke!

It is always funny how much people underestimate NBA players though. Random guys who are shocking NBA-level players would still smoke most

I saw of video of Scal in college dunk from a standing position.  The guy was a legit player in his prime - good enough to get a 5 year contract from the Celtics that seemed like a pretty good deal at the time for the team.

I agree most have no idea how good a player you need to be to make it to the NBA - or even the G League.

Yep, they are skilled more than the masses.  You can even tell the difference between college players and average Joe too.  That does not mean we should give them a free pass when they are not producing as pros though.
