NBA fans don't seem to understand how gifted NBA players are and the big gap that exists between them and the rest of us. It happened recently when they learned how great Patrick Beverley was in high school and now another high school player learned a lesson when he tried to trash talk Brian Scalabrine.
The White Mamba was anything but a star in the league but this man worked hard to be there and stayed for over a decade, so you know he must have had something that made teams value him. Well, Scalabrine recently starred in a viral Tik Tok showing this high school player harassing him and the former player-turned-analyst wasn't having any of that. He went back at this guy and told him a line that was later confirmed.
"I'm closer to LeBron than you are to me," the 43-year-old said in the video.
He was challenged to a 1-on-1 game and Brian flamed this kid, winning the match 11-0, showing that there's no comparison between them, even though this kid could aspire to become a professional player in the future. Sca showed why he played in the league and even though he wasn't the fastest of all, he showed his strength to beat the teenager.
That was really something and another proof that whoever makes it to the NBA, is on another level. We can only imagine reaching that level while every player in the league will torch us if we dare to challenge them.
