Another season of Spike TV’s “Pros vs. Joes” has been thrust upon us. And what better way to celebrate than to run somebody over:

That’s the one & only Ricky Williams, who seems to have recovered nicely from his chest injury. Hopefully, Rick helped the pummeled Joe to some of his medical mary jane aftewards.
And guess who else was showing off their mad skillz for the Spike crowd?
(And the capacity crowd goes wild.)
Yes, it’s none other than DEADSPIN guru and soon-to-be New York Times bestseller Will Leitch, getting ready to hoop it up against Charles Oakley.
Actually, the game was a two-on-two, with Oakley teamed up with fellow former NBA’er Charles Smith, while Will was lucky enough to get fellow Deadspinner A.J. Daulerio. Although no clips of the action have been officially released, Leitch offers up a pleasant photo essay of all that transpired in Madison Square Garden that day.
And it was likely the most entertaining b-ball MSG had seen in years.
