Mookie Betts bowling and playing basketball

Did Mookie Betts Choose the Wrong Sport? (Video)

The sky is blue. Grass is green. Mookie Betts is good at sports.

Frankly, I find it annoying that the Dodgers’ star and runner up to the 2020 NL MVP is good at seemingly everything he does.

Mookie has made a fortune on the baseball diamond. A true five-tool player, Betts will likely retire as one of the game’s greats if he continues on his current path.

We also know that Mr. Betts is an excellent bowler, and has bowled a perfect 300 game on multiple occassions.

Now, @ESPNNBA has shared a video of Mookie shooting hoops in a gym accompanied by two other gentlemen, who seemed to be putting him through a somewhat serious basketball workout.

In the video you can see Mookie showing off his quick jumpshot and finishing ability.

Coming in at just 5’9″, it’s fairly obvious why Mookie chose the sport he did. After all, only a handful of players have seen real success in the NBA at that height.

In an alternate universe, is Mookie Betts slithering by a defender and finishing at the rim? I guess we’ll never know.
