A story about the great basketball player "Pistol" Pete Maravich when he was in the eighth grade. He plays on the varsity basketball team at Daniel High School but has some very difficult obstacles standing in his way of playing. The only support he has is from his father, retired basketball pro Press Maravich. Written by
The movie, Pistol: The Birth of a Legend, is an excellent movie. It isn't the #1 hit at the box office type, nor does it have expensive great special effects, like many of the movies of today have. It is simply a story of Pete Maravich, a young boy who's whole life is about basketball. He is inspired by his father who seems to be the only one with faith in him. I am a basketball player and ever since I was a young child going to basketball camp our coach would play this movie every year. It motivates us. To this day we love it when Coach says we are going to watch it. We know every line and appreciate the movie. It is a great motivational movie, I definitely recommend it!
