Henry Abbott of TrueHoop headed to New York this week for Steve Nash’s Showdown in Chinatown charity soccer game and what he found was a bit surprising. On the TrueHoop mother blog, Abbott discussed his expectation that the super-athletic Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings would have been one of the better soccer crossovers.
What he found, though, was Jennings competing with the Suns’ Jared Dudley for a title neither wanted — worst soccer-playing basketball player. Dudley found himself trying to make the case after the game that it was indeed Jennings. Jennings, on the other hand, couldn’t be reached to make his case.
Dudley did, however, get ESPN writer Marc Stein’s vote for best celebration (Dudley scored twice … and Jennings three times — it was a charity game) after cartwheeling and scaling a fence.
