Joe Alexander's story makes no sense

The Bucks are down 10 at the half to the Phoenix Suns. This season the Suns are powered by their frontline of Shaq and Amare Stoudamire, and that's been the case so far. I'll have an RPI Boxscore after the game.

At the half, the Bucks television network had a recorded interview with Bucks rookie Joe Alexander. One of the anecdotes he told made no sense.

Paraphrasing here, Joe said his favorite story exemplifying his "commitment to the game" is the time in college he broke into the gym just to practice, and after the power went out he drove his car onto the court and used his headlights for lighting.

First of all, it seems to me that every basketball player claims to have broken into some facility or another at one time or another just to get in that all important "extra practice" that somehow made them better than the average player, but putting that aside, and putting aside the dubious possibility that anyone could break into a modern college facility, how did Alexander get his automobile into a building he broke into? Even if that were possible, how did he get it into the gym?

I think Joe made the story up based on two or more other stories he had heard in the past, just to express how "committed he is to the game", but he forgot to make sure the facts of his new compilated story made sense.

Alexander is not the story of the game, I think it's Bogut and how he seems to not even care that he's getting murdered against shaq.

And Skiles seems to like Sloan's idea of no help defense.

He drove his car down the bus entrance ramp, which all major arenas have. Btw he told the breaking in the gym story separately from the car story. It was you who put them together, and not him.
