CATS 123 456 789 0 NATE: Psych-out time! Well, well, Number 23! Number 23 on your jersey...on your wristband...your socks...your sneakers...trying to "be like Mike" huh? That's sad, man. 23: Sad? NATE: Yeah. Sort of. Pathetic, y'know? You're trying to be Michael Jordan! It's not gonna happen! You have no chance! Myself, I don't live vicariously through other people! I don't pattern myself after anyone! 23: So you're trying to be like...nobody. NATE: Exactly. 23: You're succeeding. NATE: I need to work on my trash talk. FRANCIS: Can you go do it on the bench?
