Netflix sports drama directed by Jeremiah Zagar. Hustle (2022) centers on former pro basketball scout, Stanley Sugarman (Adam Sandler), who discovers Spanish amateur baller, Bo Cruz (Juan Hernangómez), playing in a park outside Madrid. Charged with new found purpose, Stanley makes it his mission to groom Bo for the NBA and bring him to the States.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Stanley: Taking me to see basketball or bare knuckle boxing?
Man: We do everything.
Stanley: I’m Stanley Sugarman. I’m a scout for the 76ers.

Boban Marjanovic: Yes, I’m twenty-two years-old.
Stanley: Who’s this?
Boban Marjanovic: It’s my son.
Stanley: How old is he?

Stanley: I’ve been in this league for thirty years, and it’s like I’m nothing.
Stanley: You come to Philly, your whole world will change overnight.
Bo Cruz: I got to work. My mom and my daughter, they mean everything to me.
Stanley: The salary’s nine hundred thousand dollars.
Paola Cruz: He will call in sick.
Stanley: In all the years I’ve been doing this, have I ever reacted this way?
Stanley: [referring to Bo] He’s raw. We train him, get him in NBA shape. What do you say?
Vince: It’s not going to happen, Stan. You just got to get back out there.
Stanley: You know, I haven’t been home on my daughter’s birthday for nine years running.
Vince: I’m not asking.
Stanley’s Wife: [to Stan, referring to Bo] The Sixers don’t know you stashed him.
Stanley: Being the guy who finds the guy matters in this business.
Stanley’s Wife: Won’t Vince fire you for this?
Stanley: I just want to make sure I do what’s right for the kid.
Stanley: He’s got a daughter to support.
Stanley’s Wife: You got a daughter to support!
Basketball Player: Where are you from?

Basketball Player: Sounds whack.
Stanley: That wasn’t him, that wasn’t even close to him.
Bo Cruz: I fly home tomorrow.
Stanley: Is that what you want to do?
Stanley: [to Bo] Do you love this game? I mean, love it with your whole heart. Because if you don’t, let’s not even bother. Let’s not open that door. They’re just going to slam it right in our face.
Stanley: I love this game. I live this game. There’s a thousand other guys waiting in the wings who are obsessed with this game.
Stanley: Obsession is going to beat talent every time. You got all the talent in the world, but are you obsessed?
Stanley: [to Bo] Let’s face it. It’s you against you out there. When you walk on that court, you have to think, “I am the best guy out there.” So let me ask you again. Do you love this game?
Stanley: [to Bo] Let’s get to work. The draft is in six weeks. If we’re going to do this, we got to do it ourselves.
Blake: [referring to Bo] There’s no doubt about it. That kid’s got it.
Stanley: Do you need a handup? You don’t need nobody’s help.
Stanley: This is all for you, pal.
Bo Cruz: It’s for us.
Stanley: Okay, it’s for us.
