Baller's Backups - Scoop Jardine

You've already met the working world versions of Baye Keita and Dion Waiters. It's now time for the man who is primed to be successful, wherever his next career step takes him. Scoop Jardine.

Based on his proficiency on camera, you could imagine Scoop would follow the route of broadcaster or a TV personality. Inside Scoop, a platform on which Mr. Jardine discusses issues of the world, would open to staggering ratings, as a rival of the Daily Show and Real Time with Bill Maher.

Yet instead, Scoop wants a faster route to fame and fortune. Wall Street. Unfortunately, now is not the best time to break in, but we're guessing Scoop is just a big Michael Douglas fan.

So, yes, Scoop's alter-ego is part of the 1%, in striking contrast to his working man image on the hardwood.

Scoop Jardine - "On Wall Street"
Profession: Working on the NYSE floor
Title: Inside Scoop
Favorite Sayings: "I don't throw darts at a board. I bet on sure things. Coach Boeheim once told me, every battle is won before it is ever fought."
It's not always the most popular person who gets the job done."
"Lunch is for wimps, except when Chipotle or Cheesesteaks are on the menu."
Specialty: Quick sellers, high turnover, not afraid to pull the trigger on high-risk stocks.

Flummoxed on the floor.

Inside Scoop winces as Qdoba's stock overtakes Chipotle.
