    If it wasn't make it-take it and no rebounds, I think I have a chance if I got a month to train. I'm right under 6 feet and 180 pounds, and even not particularly that fast (my 40 time average in high school was like a 4.75) and I had some D3 offers in my prime.

    I'd be too quick for him to put ball pressure on me and my outside game is decent, however it were make it-take it with rebounding, then yeah, he would just back me down every possession and rebound his own misses.

    No.. and he proved it. He dominated everyone who tried. including a person who played division 1 basketball last year. People don't realize how good you have to be to even occupy a spot on an nba/nfl/nhl/mlb roster.

    Pssh, I wish I could beat him, I'd be out there making And1 mixtapes if I was that good.

    I played a lot of basketball growing up so I'm pretty good but not beating anyone who's in the NBA

    Plus Brian Scalabrine has almost a full foot on me height wise.

    Nah. Just because of his size. He'd body me non-stop.

    But I'm a better basketball player. No doubt about that.

    If Scalabrine was regular size I think some people might have a shot, but being 7 foot, anyone who isn't 6'5 and not in the NBA wouldn't have a shot.

    A lot of players play division 1 basketball. Put him against some guys that are actually his size and have been in the developmental league and he would get twerked. http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/tornike_shengelia/

    This guy would kill Scalabrine
