    Bumping this thread because I'm watching it RIGHT NOW lol!

    Ray's issue is that he was an army brat that grew up all over the world (born in California, spent time in the UK/EU and then high school in South Carolina). Of course he spent 4 years at UCONN.........so you get a guy with a clear accent but it doesn't really sound like New York at all. He only had 8 weeks of practice but I think he could have nailed it with more time tbh.

    Honestly think A.I. could have captured the feeling better than anyone but Ray being 6'5" and a great shooter would look a lot better on film than Iverson....since A.I. is "listed" at 6'0" but was probably more like 5'10". Denzel is shorter than Ray but not THAT much shorter, since 'Zel is a reasonably tall-ish breh himself (maybe 6'1" I'm guessing).

    Rick Fox is a pretty good actor tbh. If you didn't know who he was, you'd think he was just some regular actor with a supporting role. Think it's because he delivers his lines the way a person would actually talk in real life. Ray was delivering lines but he didn't sound like himself...if that makes any sense.

    I think all of this was overblown. I didn't mind Ray's acting in the movie, didn't do that bad :yeshrug:

    The movie was great regardless

    Leonardo Dicaprio as a sought-after high school prospect was one of the worst decisions ever.

    The only problem with AI is he ain't always the smoothest talker to be an actor but everything about him would've been perfect for that role. I think Kobe too because they both had that cockiness and swagger to them that would've added a little something extra compared to Ray. Ray was stiff as hell with his acting but the movie was great regardless. KG probably would've best captured that angry at the world scenes but I think KG was probably too raw at that point. Imagine young KG making the rounds doing interviews for this lol. Even old ass KG is too raw to be let loose imagine him at that age.
