David Spade helps hopefully will be able to play if elected Amar’e Stoudemire get ready to be picked as starting center for this year’s NBA All-Star game. Looks lately though like Spade may need more than a little coat. Episode one is Spade teaching the fine art of the flop. (Episodes 2, 3 and 4.) Athletes being themselves? It’s all they can do. But tired lines by tired actors is a little played. “Is he behind me?” being a spin on the hack line after someone falls and shouts “I’m good.” Instead, try previous hoops stuff with the flopping Billy Joe Cuthbert, Nash’s moc or the recent ESPN promo work.
