Baseketball is pretty funny...from the South Park boys.

Not a "fav" but might garner some attention.

Oh, a little known, useless fact and a connection between Hoop Dreams and the Raptors: Chuck Swirsky used to call the Chicago public high school city champioship games in the early 90s. His voice makes a brief appearance.

I completely forgot about Rebound; imo a far superiour movie to the basketball diaries...similar story except the dude was a basketball player, not an author.

Basketball Movies : List of Movies About Basketball

Celtic Pride is good fun as well.

Rebound is a fanstic film. Brings chills down my spine this cat rolled with The Pearl, Wilt and Alcindor.

A must see

I think i saw this documentary. I also recall seeing Kevin O'Neill in a few clips, at the time he was working for a College. Marquette is coming to mind but i'm not completely sure.

Yeah, dude, I think you're probably right. This was back in the 90s, so KO was probably coaching college. I'm tempted to watch it again. It's long but it's a good story....and real.

I think My Giant was the better documentary, but they were both good.

Rebound is a deep movie. It brought chills down my spine. It's underrated though because it was a low budget movie.
