ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last season during the All-Star Weekend in Houston, at one point I found myself on an NBA TV set sitting across from Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter and fastest man on earth. Bolt was in Houston to play in the celebrity game at All-Star Weekend, and he was obviously serious about putting up a good performance.
So we know Bolt not only cares about basketball but considers himself to be pretty good at it. But in this video clip from a French talk show, we see Bolt not only calling out Spurs G Tony Parker, but also making (well, appearing to make) a couple of trick shots on a basket that seems to be mounted high upon the Egyptian Obelisk on the Champs-Élysées. A lot to process here…
