If you watched at least 10 minutes of All-Star Weekend coverage, then you’ve seen the ads for “Think Like a Man,” which is a real movie. So real, in fact, that a scene from this real movie has been put up online to entice potential audiences to spend their actual money to see this — I repeat — real movie.
As you can see, “Think Like a Man” features cameos from your favorite non-essential Lakers from the 2010-11 season. You’ve got some Ron Artest, some Matt Barnes, a little Shannon Brown and a few other bros, plus Lisa Leslie. Not sure why they didn’t work in a Luke Walton angle, but I’m no Martin Scorcese.
Judging from this 2-minute clip, it’s pretty obvious that we’re looking at our generation’s “Just Wright,” a basketball movie that redefines joke-making for hoops fans. I’m not saying it’s imperative that you see this movie, but you might need to if you want to make hilarious jokes with your friends when you see Metta World Peace do something silly on the court. This movie will be a great weapon to have in your back pocket, for those times you need a hilarious zinger to get all the retweets.
Or, I suppose, you could just watch this scene and call it a day. There’s more than enough here to formulate some solid cracks, plus another hour-and-a-half of this might literally drive you insane. Your call. Either way is good by me.
