Truly a legend we almost never even knew was there.
Like many, I had never even heard of Earl Manigault until I saw the movie. I am not even that much of a basketball fan. But after seeing this movie, it created an all new interest in not only basketball, but learning a little more about Earl Manigault.
It also teaches us a valuable lesson that I have always believed in.
No matter how bad you may think you sank, there is always a way to make things better for yourself. Earl found that out with some help and taught it to a whole new generation of kids.
Just like it said in the movie: " He rose on the court and fell, only to rise again".
