Yahoo Sports reporter Marc Spears often has the inside scoop on all kinds of NBA-related gossip. But he sure is terrible at pool. Good n’ terrible. Yahoo seems to be experimenting with casual multi-media interviews. Which is fine. But whoever decided that Spears and NBA rookie Harrison Barnes should play pool, should have asked Spears if he actually knew how to play pool. Because he clearly doesn’t.
Seriously, watch Spears’ shot at :48. Just awful. And whoever edited this video really must not like him. That was the best closeup shot you could find? Really? You just unabashedly clowned one of the best NBA reporters in the business.
Things don’t get much better from there. Spears appears to only make one shot the entire game–a 12-inch gimme in the corner pocket. The next time Yahoo tries one of these casual video interviews, Spears should try chess, or Playstation, or Settlers of Catan. Anything but pool.
