Not doubting Scal's one on one skills, but the second guy fails at one on one.

You always, I repeat always want to start as close as you can, and with the triple threat position. The guy doesn't do any of that, he starts off 3 foot behind the three point line and dribbles straight away.

When you do that it makes it easier for the defender to check you and expend less energy straight away, as they don't have to watch out for the pump fake or the jab step.

Scal always start off at the three, adds a couple of pumps and jab steps...

Go watch a couple of Kobe one on ones, exactly the same thing. Never dribbles 3 foot behind the three.

Last year Scalebrine was shooting 70% FG and 66% from 3 in the Italian league playing against professional ballers from all over the world.

Guys like Dee Brown who were elite in college go to Europe and don't dominate all the time.

I have no doubt that an in shape current Scalabrine could go to Duke and become one of the top players in NCAA and probably lead them to the national title.

Oh no doubt. Scalabrine was one of the top players in the NCAA when he was originally in the NCAA. I was just saying he wouldn't suddenly become LeBron James, throwing no-look dimes, catching alley-oop passes thrown to the rafters, and speeding past everyone on the court. He'd still be Scalabrine, playing a Scalabrine game, and it would be very good.

It amazes me how people think they could beat a NBA bench player in one on one. These guys have tons of experience playing against the best in the world and they get the best coaching and training. You'd be a fool to think you could best them, whether they're a small guard or a big man.
