This is pretty good, mainly due to the back story.
There is a deleted scene in the 2007 movie The Jane Austen Book Club where the character Dean Drummond goes on a humorous tirade about Tim Duncan. The fun behind this scene is that the actor who plays Drummond is actually Marc Blucas, one of Duncan’s former teammates at Wake Forest. In fact, Blucas was at San Antonio’s first round home playoff games against the Dallas Mavericks.
I have nothing further to add, but an additional sentence seemed appropriate beneath the excerpt.
