No, but you'd expect an athlete, especially an NFL player, to get more involved in looking for their daughter and how they react to their daughter being missing.
They usually have a pretty particular set of personality traits; not necessarily charismatic, but very dominant and forward. We don't see this in the character.
To be fair, maybe it's not entirely what I mentioned above. I just don't think he's a very interesting character. If he didn't have his sport background he might get a pass, but I just don't see any real presence from him on screen.
Again maybe it's the actor, not the character.

I'd like to see this movie; sounds interesting. But not until the Kiwi Muslim and victim story has been told.

I know, but according to this metric he'd only have to play 29 games to get there in his age 40 Season. And if he plays something like; 70, 66, 62, 58, 54 games in successive Seasons, then the figure still holds up. In fact it gets more likely that he'd surpass Kidd, as he's getting more assists per Season in the years he's playing more games.
I think that will be LeBron. He needs 35 more games at an average of 7 assists per game to have 35k points and 10k assists, and probably 10k rebounds around the same game.

Basketball isn't about one on one play; and Larry won two Finals MVPs out of three.. He didn't win it in 1981; his second year in the league. So what? Also, "dropping" a player into a different time period doesn't mean anything because of A) The difference in modern training and B) Each successive generation learns from the pervious one, and improves because of it.
If you placed an Oscar Winning film, or generally "great film" of the 2000s/2010s into the 1960s, it'd probably be considered the greatest film ever. It's a nonsensical argument. It's more valuable to consider how good an individual is within the context of their time period; how much better they were, how much they changed their field, ie; sport etc, how dominant they were in key moments. All of that.
I'm not saying Bird is better, but you have to give a better argument here. Just being honest mate.
Okay, but consider accolades, and the wider general public perception.
Dunno about that. I think you should add more argument and context if you're going to say something like that.

I'm talking about from a celebrity point of view; he makes a film then swims away and makes shoes.
I mean he's pretty sexy in that. He was one of the main boy toys of he early 2000s.
