I loved this scene because it really encapsulates the McElroy brothers’ comedy style. If this were some other average group the joke would be that one brother is saying he’s the B-Ball King and the other two saying “uh huh, yeah right you shit head” and stuff. And like, while these brothers aren’t like “yeah! aw, you’re the best and i love you <3″, they do still err on the side of positive. the humor doesn’t come from mocking, the humor just comes from being funny and likeable. the joke is still “justin was not a basketball king but he thinks he is”, but the other two brothers improv on the joke not by going “you sucked at basketball you nerd” but by going “aw man i remember going to all your games, the miracle on wood they’d call you” and its just as funny if not more, but its really good-natured at the same time.
These brothers are good boys.
