Remember the 1 on 1 challenge where Scal said he was sick of people running their mouths? Well it happened and Scalebrine beat all 4 opponents easily by a score of 44-6. Then he proceeded to beat the guys who hosted in a game of 1 on 3.. and beat them 11-1.

30 minutes of footage and some audio here to go with the article.

So if you've ever said to yourself that you can beat "scrubs" in the NBA take notes. These guys auditioned for the chance to play Scalebrine and were some of the better players in all of Boston.

Im good enough to play at a D3 even D2 level man, I know ball and I know good ballers, and THOSE that he played are NOT "Bostons best street ballers" because BOSTONS BEST STREET BALLERS would blow scal away, that's real man.

I didn't say that some streetballer would win vs any nba player,but those guys that played him,they aren't BEST streetballers boston have,they are streetballers that wanted to play vs Scal....Believe me,there has to be atleast one baller that would make it atleast to 8-9pts...believe it or not there are streetballers that didn't make it in the nba because of health problems,or problems with drugs...maybe in few years there will be some nba players doing the same thing Scal did and maybe they face idk lets say Royce White??You think Royce can't win vs some retired player 1on1??(i don't think it will be KD or LBJ,it will be(if it happens) some 15th player on roster or something like that)

I am not impressed at all. It took him about 6 possessions to score a single point against the third guy. Also, what was up with some of these rules. If these are the 4 best ballers in Boston, then Boston has some pretty **** talent up there.

01-22-2013, 07:50 PM
They are four of the guys who were picked to play out of those who auditioned. They're I'm sure some of the better players, but who's to say those are the 4 best guys in Boston? As someone stated 2 of them play college ball. One is a walk on at Syracuse. Scal should take this on the road I guess, "street ball kings" around the country need to be shut up.

Great points. I shouldn't have said 4 best players in Boston but 4 of the better that auditioned. Maybe the best players didn't audition for all we know. Bottom line is two play college for D1 schools which is much more than the people on here bashing it can say.

What is up with complaining with travelling and defense? You're playing with an ex NBA player. You follow NBA standards, in this case Scal's Rules (nba rules).

Travelling call is almost doesn't get called ever.
and
Call your own fouls. There is a ref there. Do what NBA players do. Call your own foul and yell at the ref.

He's a much better announcer than he was a player.

The guys he played are not street ballers. There isn't much street ball in Boston. Hartford, NY, Chicago, are way ahead talent wise. In my day the best city talent was at BCH (City Hospital), when pros like Tiny Archibald and Terry Duerod would show up.

All but one of these guys were/are D1/D2 college players. And yes he traveled a lot.

I don't think some of you who still thinks you can beat Scal realize how hard it is to make it to the nba. to do so, you have to prove yourself to be one of the best at every level...whether it's high school or college. even the worse player in the nba was one of the best when he was in high school/college. that's why they're a pro and no street ballers can beat a pro. street ballers are street ballers and no pros because they couldn't make it at whatever level they were at. what makes any of them think they have a chance versus someone who proved themselves to be one of the best at whatever level the street ballers are at and beyond?

Kids in NYC public schools could have beaten the first dude. How is he one of Boston's best when he air balls short jumpers?

To be fair, people grossly overestimate their ability to "make shots". And making shots when playing a competitive game against a real defender is MUCH harder than just making an open shot in practice or playing a pick up game without an audience or cameras around.

I see this all the time in Pool.

A guy make an 8 ball run and they think they have a shot against a Professional. Aside from just a superior peak level of play and understanding, the difference between the amateur and the professional is a level of consistency that amateurs are unable to achieve not only in practice but in competition as well.

For example, Efren Reyes (one of the best 9-ball players in the world) executed 300 spot shots IN A ROW to win a bet. That's placing the cue ball and target ball on the 2 spots on the table (top of the triangle, center of the shot line).

I knew one semi-professional player. His best practice run was clearing 23 consecutive 9 ball racks without a single miss including off the breaks. And he considered himself 3 years away from being good enough to play as a full time professional.

The worst NBA players have a level of play and consistency that goes far beyond what amateurs can do. Are there former College players who were missed during the draft that could compete for a bench spot? Sure.

However, those ex-D1 and international players aren't common at all in terms of playing street ball. The vast majority who are that good are playing international ball.

I think he had HCA, kinda at least.

Yup, home court advantage.

As in, he's an nba level player and they are not, he has the advantage over them because he's just a flat out better player.

Therefore he has the advantage over any non nba player when he steps into any court.

i cant believe theres still people getting gangsta after the demolishion he has done.-

Deal with it, if you have the skill to be the worst nba player in the last position of the bench from the worst record nba team, is better than your streetballers.

add 95% of the players that have d1 experience or Pro experience abroad too as in better than streetballas.
