Childhood Dan Devine (let's call him "Li'l Dan") is beside himself with glee at the prospect of watching His Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man cook dudes on the playground. Grown-up Dan Devine (let's call him "Dan") is a little more worldly and understands that this is just a let's-get-viral video clip featuring famous streetballer Grayson "The Professor" Boucher — whom you might remember from the AND1 Live Tour back in the day — showcasing his skills in a costume for the purposes of promoting his YouTube channel, website and general exhibition-friendly talents.
You know what? I'm sick of Dan. Let's let Li'l Dan have the day and enjoy a fantasy world in which Spider-Man is not only awesome at basketball due to his super-powers, but actually dribbles (unlike Andrew Garfield) and doesn't get taken down by two little kids on the court (like Andrew Garfield). This is better, even if it doesn't include web-shooters. (Or Emma Stone.)
