Argentinian Boxer’s Bad Acting Puts Al Jefferson’s To Shame

Al Jefferson’s voice acting in NBA 2K15 is a laughingstock. But at least you can believe that he’s really that boring, maybe. Marcos Gabriel Martinez — now THERE’S an unconvincing actor.

We rarely get such blatant-looking dives as the one that just got Martinez suspended by Argentinian authorities. That one punch from Braulio Rodriguez only glanced Martinez’s skull, while the rest missed by a mile. Maybe Martinez, as a baby, was often stroked to sleep by an affectionate parent who let a hand skim the surface of his head. It’s the only explanation that isn’t “he took a dive.”

But if that isn’t it, he gets thumbs up from divers of every sort.
