    Damn it, I just read the “click the next page to find out”. If I had known the answers were printed, I wouldn’t have flexed my “NBA player in cheesy movies” muscle. Fail!

    I only got four of them, Yaz, MJ, Kazaam, and Jesus(!).

  • The Dude Abides

    Wasn’t there a movie starring Alex English as an NBA player who participates in some protest against nuclear weapons that was organized by some kid? I seem to recall it could have been pretty good, but the actor playing the kid had the range of Chuck Norris trying to act stoic.

    There were only two players in motion pictures over the past decade (mentioned in the quiz, at least)?

    The Dude Abides: That was one of the worst movies ever made. Really.

  • Troy P

    The Alex English movie was “Amazing Grace & Chuck”.

  • Eric

    Rick Fox was also in the movie HOLES as Clyde “Sweetfeet” Livingston.

    Rick Fox played Jackson Vahue in the HBO show “Oz.” One of the best shows ever, and he does a great job with his role.
