Hmm I've never watched this show but this news is frustrating. I'd hope it is scripted because there is no way this should be happening. If in shape D-1 ballers are working these guys that's understandable but three high school level athletes is a fcking embarrassment. Have some pride.
Maybe the exact plays in the games and events arent scripted, but EVERYTHING on tv follows a script to some extent. The editing studio and the writers leave their fingerprints all over this show and its very obvious.
Anyway Marlo, I didnt see the episode in question, but I did see the one where Shawn Kemp and Ron Harper got beaten by some much younger guys who had been college ballers. The Joes in that episode matched up pretty well with the Pros.
I saw some of it. The pros won. The Joes couldn't stop Zo from scoring so they just fouled him a bunch of times, but the refs let it go. The former NBA players looked lazy on defense and rebounding. They picked it up towards the end, though. One of the Joes did make a nice reverse lay up on Walker and Zo. I assume that Zo, Walker and Horry were just halfassing it until towards the end.
