Is Hustle based on a true story?
If you would have thought Hurry based on a true story, you would be wrong. It is simply a well-written and acted piece of fiction. Adam Sandler’s character, Stanley Sugerman, is neither a real scout and coach of the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team, nor is Bo Cruz (Juancho Hernangómez) a real streetball player from Spain. However, Juancho Hernangómez is a real life basketball player who currently plays for the Utah Jazz and the Philadelphia 76ers is a real life basketball team from the National Basketball Association.
Also, there are many real current and former NBA basketball players who play themselves and appear in the film such as Trae Young, Jordan Clarkson, Khris Middleton, Aaron Gordon, Kyle Lowry, Seth Curry, Luka Doncic, Tobias Harris, Tyrese Maxey, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson and more.
So there you have it folks! Hurry not based on a true story. Instead, it’s created by the creative minds of Taylor Materne and Will Fetters.
