HS basketball player challenges Brian Scalabrine to 1-on-1, regrets it
It never ceases to be hilarious whenever a regular person believes they can challenge a professional athlete in their given sport. The answer is always a resounding, “No, you can’t.”
Pro athletes are so absurdly good at their sports that regular people can take for granted just how amazing those athletes are whenever they miss a shot, strike out, shank a tee shot. The worst player on an NBA team was likely among the best players ever at his college and is a legend at his high school.
And this applies to any former professional athlete who stays in even moderately good shape after retirement like former NBA vet Brian Scalabrine.
One high school basketball player learned that the hard way when he challenged Scalabrine to a game of one-on-one and even put a pair of shoes on the line.
These high school kids bet Brian Scalabrine a pair of shoes they could beat him 1-on-1 😅 @brkicks

Scalabrine, who hasn’t played in the NBA in nine years, was still able to beat this high school player, 11-0. And he made it look pretty easy.
Let that video serve as another reminder that you can’t beat pro athletes at sports.
