Our Dreams Can Change.


Basketball Is My Dream.

That Results

In What, Dear? The Nba?


How Many Players

Are There In The Nba?

So With 125 Million

Adult Males In This Country,

That Means Your Odds

Of Making It Are About

One In 350,000.

[Pager Beeping]

Ugh. Gotta Run

To The Hospital.

Look, Alex...

I'm Not Trying

To Dump On Your Dreams.

I'm Just Trying To Help You

Keep Things In Perspective.

We'll Talk About That

Rocket Fuel Thing Later.

Hey...You All Right?


Yeah, Sure.

I Mean, What Does Mom

Know About Basketball?

Yeah. Nice.

You Know, The Nba

Takes Players From

All Over The World,

So Actually, Your

Chances Are Much Worse.

Thanks. Now I'm Really

Cheered Up.

Alex, She Means Well,

Ok? But For Your Mother,

Being A Doctor Is The

Most Exciting Thing

A Person Could Ever Do

With Her Life.

As Exciting As Hitting

A 3-Pointer Right

At The Buzzer?

Ok, How About

A Little One-On-One?

For The Last Piece Of

My Double Fudge Cake?

Show Me Your Moves, Old Man.

Well Seasoned.



[Alarm Sounding]


I'd Like To See You Do That.

Rabbi Lewis...

He Bum Fakes...

Spins By Shaq...

Running Rabbi,

He Double Clutches,


For The Jump-Up...

He Shoots...


Wah! Ah!

From Downtown.

Hi, Alex...

Uh, Come In,

Come In, Come In.

Uh, Something

On Your Mind?

Besides The Yarmulke?



You Said In Class That

When The People Of Israel

Were Up Against The Ropes,

Judah Maccabee

Led Them To Victory.

Oh, So You Were


Our Team Needs

A Judah Maccabee.

Is That So?

Mr. Simowitz Has Never

Played Basketball.

I Don't Think He's Ever

Worn A Pair Of Shorts.

Can You Hire Us A Real Coach?

Uh, Well, Your Mother

Chairs Our Board

Of Directors.
