“After discovering a once-in-a-lifetime player with a rocky past abroad, a down on his luck basketball scout (Adam Sandler) takes it upon himself to bring the phenom to the States without his team’s approval. Against the odds, they have one final shot to prove they have what it takes to make it in the NBA.”
‘Hustle’ is Sandler’s second venture into the realm of basketball as the climax of ‘Uncut Gems’ revolves around a basketball game. He has appeared in several other sports films, including ‘Happy Gilmore’ and the 2005 version of ‘The Longest Yard’.
Sandler first appears in the teaser as a retired professional basketball scout. He provides a motivating pep talk to Juancho Hernangomez, who is a street basketball player in Spain. We also see Sandler preparing Hernangomez for the game. Weightlifting, sprinting, street basketball, and other exercises are all part of the hard training.
