Vince Wilfork Plays Basketball, Calls Himself “The Real MJ” (Video)

The season premiere of HBO’s Hard Knocks is set to air tonight, and with the cameras focused on the Houston Texans training camp this time around, you can expect newly-acquired defensive tackle Vince Wilfork to get plenty of airtime.

The producers of the show don’t seem to be shying away from that notion.  Rather, they appear to be promoting it with their teaser for tonight’s episode, which features a 90-second look at the 325-pound former Patriot shooting some hoops with his family.

From the looks of it, Wilfork starts off poorly before catching fire down the stretch, all the while referring to himself as Tim Duncan, Vlade Divac, and “The Real MJ.”
