VIDEO: Win Butler plays basketball against alt NBA Legend Matt Bonner, gets his ass kicked

Win Butler is rumored to be the greatest basketball player in indie. His size and aggression make him tough to handle in any pickup game. However, is he so invincible against premium NBA players like Matt Bonner? He has been seen bronoodling with the Arcade Fire before [link]. Anyways, they participated in some sort of 'charity basketball game', but eventually just turned into ball hogs, didn't pass to their teammates, then acted like it was a 1-on-1 tournament, only defending one another and driving from coast-to-coast. After the game, they talked like they were the only ppl there.

What do u think of Win Butler's game in the video? Do u think u could shut him down? Can he really hit a contested jumpshot? If Win Butler 'gave up' the Arcade Fire, could he be the 12th man on an NBA team?

What started as a charity basketball tournament in Toronto ended as an epic grudge match between Arcade Fire’s Win Butler and San Antonio Spurs forward Matt Bonner. Find out who won, who lost, and who dunked on a girl.

Does Win look good in his sleeveless shirt? Does he seem like a tough matchup? Does he seem like a nightmare pickup-game teammate?

Is Matt Bonner still the alt-est player in the NBA or is he still behind Steve Nash / Delonte West / [miscellaneous white guy] / Metta World Peace?

Were u impressed by Win Butler?
Is he a mainstream bro?
Should he try out 4 the NBA?
Is his basketballing talent being wasted writing Grammy-award winning indie songs?
Do u wish Regine showed up 2 show off her WNBA-wave skills?
Do u wish Regine showed up in a lil steampunk cheerleading outfit, like she wears on stage?
Do u think u could beat Win Butler? What would be ur gameplan?
