I always appreciated that John Krasinski at least appeared to have played basketball at some point in his life. Some of his moves are still awkward and stunted, but it doesn't look like it's the first time he's played: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9B7BYHKiyig
Also, I heard the character who plays Kevin (Brian Baumgartner, seen at the end of the clip above) was the most athletic guy on that set.
And I've heard Steve Carrell may have played hockey in high school
I swear like every show has at least one scene at some point of some of the cast playing hoops. They always look so ridiculous awful and fake. Always talking trash...like that is what really happens when two work people go out to shoot around for fun. Just OD OD OD always. Even when the show, like CSI, is about a basketball star...the scenes for hoops of the "star players" are just cringe worthy bad. Anybody else get annoyed by this?
You know man, I am glad I aint the only one feeling like that. I was watching a movie yesterday and the peeps shooting form was so horrible that I wondered where in America did those folks grow up that they dont even have a form that looks at least decent.
Grown men on TV chucking the ball like a 5 year old, see it all the time. Also those flying dunks
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.
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.
