Let's be honest.

Movie with good actors who suck at bball > Movie with good bball players who can't act.

Yeah Ray Allen looked fluid in the bball scenes but if it weren't for Denzel that movie starts drifting towards unwatchable territory.

Yes this bugs me. There's a movie with Adam Baldwin called 3:15 or Class 89 where's he's supposed be the best player on his team and dude has no hoops athletecism at all.....looks like a stiff.....yet they try to make him look good.

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but the Fresh Prince episode where Will and Allen Payne are hoops star rivals. They weren't even playing on regulation sized courts.....laughable. Looks like Jadacris mentioned this.

The flying dunks are probably the worst aspect of it. I already saw Spider man and Catwoman mentioned, and those are two of the worst ones I've seen. And if you've ever seen a basketball scene in an Indian movie, it's just cringe-worthy. They can barely dribble.

And basketball scenes aren't even the worst offender. If you've seen any movies with "hacking" involved, you know what I mean.

Or this, or this, or this

I don't know why these writers think hacking is about typing at 100+ wpm with Windows popping up from every which direction. And then they show some fancy device that they use to bypass the password system.
