NBA Playoffs

A Busboy Defeats the NBA on 'Jimmy Kimmel' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jun 15th 2010 9:40PM
A Busboy Defeats the NBA on 'Jimmy Kimmel'Busboy Ricardo Reyes is the 'Pop-a-Shot' master. He has defeated all challengers at the mini-basketball game, and his challengers have included NBA All-Stars Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. (You can see his victories here for yourself.)

Jimmy Kimmel and his staff discovered 'Pop-a-Shot' prodigy Reyes in a local bar, and brought him on the show. In addition to beating LeBron and Kobe at the game, Reyes has also beaten Charles Barkley and Carmelo Anthony. And so, what reward does Reyes get for his mini-basketball dominance?

Why, a new car, of course! On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC), Kimmel awards the unsuspecting Ricardo with a brand new Ford Mustang. And then, Reyes drives off into the sunset, the undefeated champion of 'Pop-a-Shot.' Perhaps one day he will return -- if his title ever needs defending. Until then, Mr. Reyes, we bid you adiós.

Russell Brand Talks About His In-Laws with Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel is hosting a special half-hour version of his show before each game of the NBA Finals. And the first guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC) is English actor and comedian Russell Brand. Unfortunately, Russell Brand and basketball go together about as well as ... two things that don't go together at all. So luckily for us, Kimmel quickly moves Brand onto the topic of sex, drugs and his fiancée Katy Perry.
