I recently thought of a Seinfeld plot that was never written. In my story, Jerry and Kramer would be in the gym, where they would encounter Verne Troyer, better known as Mini Me. Troyer announces that he has gotten together a basketball team called “Five Bald Guys.” After much trash-talking, he challenges Jerry, Kramer, George, Elaine and Newman to a game of basketball with a proviso that Troyer was the only player on his team who gets to shoot the ball. Of course, they make a large bet on the outcome.
After the bet is made, we see Jerry and his friends cursing the outcome (some basketball fans may be able to see it coming). The “Five Bald Guys,” of course, are Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Kevin Garnett and Shaquille O’Neal. It would be great to hear Jordan, et. al. congratulate Verne on finding five more pigeons for the scam. For Shaq and Garnett, it would be an easy manner to hold Troyer high enough in the air to make every shot he took. I can just hear Verne Troyer taunting Jerry that it must hurt to know that he was dunked on 45 times.
