I want the real Scally

Written by Slevin424

(There's already a good review of him so I'll just air out my complaints)

So I gladly just paid 50k MT for the White Mamba expecting maybe he'd be on bid for 400K but I found out why he's cheap. This isn't the real Scally. The first game I played I went for his signature running full court shot and it missed?! He was wide open too. Not very Scally like. The worst part is they clearly don't have his signature dunk package either. No 720 between the legs or double windmill dunk. And then I tried to do his most famous dunk, yes the one we all remember from his 2011 dunk contest. Where he easily dunked from the half court line over a Chevy Silverado. It was such a ridiculous dunk the fans protested claiming it was fake and the NBA decided not to air it on TV. And everyone remembers what happened next... Scally was so upset he left the arena and the NBA decided to bring out some look-a-like named Blake Griffin to dunk over the hood of a tiny Kia. Sadly this incident was the reason Scally decided to retire after that year as he felt disrespected.

Guess what happens if you try to dunk from the half court line? He just shoots it... and misses?! I don't know if maybe they're holding out on us and giving us a galaxy opal Scally later with all his signature moves but this just doesn't feel like Scally. His stats and lack of signature moves makes him feel mediocre. This doesn't feel like Scally, just feels like I'm using that Blake fella.
