AC Green won three NBA titles and missed just three games over the course of his 16-year NBA career, setting the NBA ironman mark by playing in 1,192 consecutive games. The Showtime Lakers, however, are far more impressed by Green's ability to remain a virgin for his entire NBA career until he got married in 2002.
In a hilarious 30 for 30 short directed by Isaac Feder and narrated by Will Ferrell, Green and his former Lakers teammates tell the tale of his unwavering pledge to remain abstinent.
Five-time NBA champion Michael Cooper said that Green would turn regularly down invitations to go out and party with the team.
"We'd say 'AC, go out and party with us.' He'd say 'no I won't go out with you guys, but I'll pray for you guys.'"
Green's teammates would even send women to his hotel room, but he had a special strategy to drive them away.
"I would just start praying. Saying prayers super loud."
