Silver Screen Sports Stars: Our Favorite Fictional Athletes

Some athletes are so good that their skills seem almost too good to be true. These are your LeBrons and MJs of the world. Then you have that group of athletes that are made-up. Fictional athletes from blockbuster movies are pretty amazing in their respective worlds. No jump shot is out of their range, nor is any fastball too swift to knock out of the sandlot. For all their hard work and dedication to the script — we meant “sport” — we had to show love to 10 of the greatest fictional athletes in movie history. From Rocky Balboa to Jesus Shuttlesworth, we’ve looked beyond the realms of reality to recognize the greatness that these guys possess. We just hope their talents translate over into the sequel.
