Several weeks ago, Sports Illustrated published a highly entertaining feature titled, “Hollywood Big Board: 20 Movie QBs Who Would Get the Call on Draft Day”. In the article/post, Sports Illustrated writers did some work in the “film room — and Youtube and Netflix” in order to compile a list of the best quarterbacks — from the movies — who could get drafted into the NFL.
So today at Philadunkia we are taking a page out of the “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” playbook and publishing a post with a similar theme. The scribes here at Philadunkia were asked to choose one “amateur” basketball player from the silver screen for the 76ers to select with the 11th pick in the 2013 Draft.
The only guideline provided to our scribes was that the movie character they chose for the Sixers with the 11th pick in this June’s draft could NOT be a “professional” basketball player (NBA or other league) in a film. It’s also assumed that the movie character will be available at #11 when the Sixers are on the clock. Lastly, for this post we suspended the NBA’s no high school players in the Draft rule.
Our 2013 Hollywood picks for the 7-6 after the jump…
