Allen Iverson? Tim Hardaway, Jamal Crawford, Steve Francis? Those are the usual suspects that pop up in the conversation for best handles and/or crossover in NBA history but the answer to best handles in the entire universe (maybe just the Marvel Universe) is Spider-Man! Please excuse the fact that he has web that allows him to carry or palm the ball easier than MJ and please ignore that ridiculous scene in the Spiderman reboot a couple of years ago with that Social Network kid. If you haven’t seen the scene than please spend the next 2 minutes doing so by watching the video below.
I liked the film overall, especially the more serious scenes but that corny scene is going to be left out of the argument. We will also ignore the impostor (actually Andrew Garfield taking a break from filming the Spiderman sequel) that was seen a few months ago playing ball at a basketball court in Chinatown with a bunch of kids.
The real web slinging ankle breaking Spider-Man is the one in the first video above toying with the Kevin Durant fan. And I hate to break it to all of you Marvel fanatics but Spidey’s real name isn’t Peter Parker it’s Grayson Boucher.
and here’s some not so cool Spider-Man basketball moments…
