A NBA basketball star has been left red-faced after a British amateur out-skilled him in an impromptu basketball contest.
Devin Harris was in the UK ahead of a match at the O2 arena between his team the New Jersey Nets and the Miami Heat, but the star will regret clashing with locals on a training court.
The point guard was showing fans in Stockwell, south London his skills when a slim 28-year-old wearing jeans and a jumper challenged him to a game of one-on-one.
But after blocking a number of shots from the US star who earns $7.8 million dollars a year, amateur Stuart Tanner from Surrey dribbled the ball around him to score, he even nutmegged the NBA ace before scoring a second shot.
Not content with scoring on the court Tanner also scored a internet hit by posting a video of his exploits on YouTube, so far it has been watched by 4 million people.
