Man Recounts The Time Hayden Creamed Him At Basketball

This apparently happened years ago but someone waited until now to share the tale with Nerdist, a tale of pickup basketball and Hayden Christensen going into Anakin mode when teased about his playing skills:

The game was tied at 19, and Hayden had the ball. I was on him, tight, and was looking to avoid a screen by the kid from Dawson’s Creek. I watched Hayden dribble left, before crossing over to his right, causing me to lose my footing and collide with the leg of my own teammate.

I was left wallowing on the ground like a B-1 Battledroid following the Battle of Geonosis. As I looked up and watched him put in the game winner, I knew that for the rest of my life, I would be known as the guy who got crossed over by Anakin Skywalker.

Also, peruse Anakin’s high kill count vs. Darth Vader’s in the saga.  You’ll be surprised.

    It’s feels good, doesn’t it? Hayden can lay it down but chooses – never – to make a production out of it. So many critics questioned his physicality.

      Nice response, Linda. All those critics really needed to watch the “Trying To Do My Thing” webisode and note Nick Gillard’s words at 2:55:

      “He’s got a fantastic mind. He understands exactly, the part. Every stunt he’s got on this movie, he’ll do it. We have a double, we have a good double. I mean, he’s fiercer than the double, and, you know, he’s made out of tough stuff.”

    Ha!!! I’m looking back through some of the blog entries here and I had to laugh when I read this:

    “I was left wallowing on the ground like a B-1 Battledroid following the Battle of Geonosis.”

    That’s an all-time classic! Perfect!!! 😀
