For Father’s Day, my daughter said I could watch whatever I wanted (very kind considering it’s my television). I chose to watch the final Spurs game, thus far, of the 2019-2020 NBA season.
The Spurs hosted the Dallas Mavericks back on March 10th, just before the NBA postponed all play due to the increasing concern over the coronavirus pandemic.
If you don’t remember, it was TNT Tuesday Night presentation which meant no Sean and Bill. Still and all it was a great game. The good guys made a late game 21-5 run which gave them the lead and turned the tables on what would have otherwise been a series sweep in favor of the Mavs.
Every time the Spurs play the Mavs, I think the same thing- “Man, Rick Carlisle looks a lot like Jim Carrey without hair.”
Don’t believe me?
If Carrey didn’t smile and could bring back the last fifteen minutes of Man On The Moon where Andy Kaufman shaved his head, the casting would be a no-brainer.
Which got me thinking- “Who would play some of the other NBA coaches?”
First off, Scott Brooks is a dead ringer for Sweetchuck.
Tim Kazurinsky’s best known roles was bumbling Officer Sweetchuck in the Police Academy film series.
And as you saw, I posted a photo of Donald Sutherland as Pop, but all Star Wars fans know Alec Guinness would be the better choice. In fact, when Pop retires, he should play Star Wars era Alec Guinness.
So have fun with it, Pounders, who would play some of the coaches -active or retired- in the biopic (or made-for-TV-special if it’s the Knicks) about their team?
P.S. If you’d cast the Pringles logo as Mike D’Antoni and tell his life story through animation, we are on the same page.
Who’s your distressed Doc Rivers. . .
. . . exasperated Erik Spoelstra . . .
. . . distinguished Dwane Casey . . .
. . . baby-faced Brad Stevens . . .
. . . and your akimbo Steve Kerr?
Who’s your fired Fizdale, your baffled Budenholzer, your vanquished Vogel?
What about the preppy Pat Riley, Phil “asterisk” Jackson, or legendary Lenny Wilkens?
Who is your casting choice?
