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.
