Tell Bill Simmons he is wrong on both explanations regarding Kareem's early departure from "Fish". The real explanation is that Kareem was sitting in D.P. Frank Stanley's directors chair. When Frank Stanley kindly asked Kareen for his seat back, Kareem responded by heaving the chair across the basketball court. That encounter marked the end of Kareem on "The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh". See more »

I was actually an extra in this movie, one of the worst sports movies ever made. I only did one day's worth of work and it was one of the most boring things I've ever experienced. I'm in the scene where someone supposedly puts helium in the basketballs and they float to the top of the Civic Arena. A crane (out of camera range) had thin wires attached to the balls. The director took about 10 takes of the scene. I thought I would lose my mind, trying to act surprised every time the balls "floated." When I saw the film I was shocked at how little screen time the shot got, but not as shocked at how bad the whole movie was. With a cast as good as it has you'd think they could save it, but the script was so bad even the great Stockard Channing couldn't help!
