These Pros vs. Joes type challenges started going viral about a month ago.
Could you complete a pass in 30 attempts against an NFL defense?
Could you score 15 points in an NBA game?
Could you win a point against a pro tennis player?
I took some flack for it, but they were pretty flawed questions. 30 attempts is way too many attempts. 15 points is way too many points. I thought the NBA one would be the hardest of this group. I played basketball my entire life. I played til after the sun went down for a large portion of my childhood. Just shooting in the driveway. Working on my craft.
But in November's Barstool Invitational, we got to play on the court vs. a former College Player. It was nearly impossible to dribble. And this was a guy who didn't even sniff an NBA roster!
So anybody who thinks they are bad enough to fill it up in an NBA game, Jimmy Butler is giving you that chance, for only $699!
Butler is a 6x All-Star and 5x All-Defensive Team selection. He's not the biggest NBA player, but at 6'7" 230 lbs., I can say he's definitely bigger than you. This is a guy who led the league in steals in 2021. The only chance you'd ever have to score is to turn completely around and throw it over your head with enough arc where you'd hope he's unable to block it. I don't even think it'd be possible to get a basket-facing shot off against Jimmy! But if you've got $700 lying around, it could be fun to just try.
