The best basketball movie ever made.
14 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

It's arguably better than Hoop Dreams. That said, it's about Kenny Jones, his playground dream team "Kenny's Kings," his relationships between him and his players, particularly, playground phenom, 18 yr old Ed "Booger" Smith, and life in Brooklyn during the summer of 1993. It's not all about a game. While Hoop Dreams is about an American Dream in the lives of two teens in Chicago, this one is about real life on the streets of America. It's more realistic and raw, from its language, to its soundtrack alone. Of course, it's very much about basketball, and the emotion involved when competing (note the first scene). It is a completely non-critical, fast paced film which should be seen by basketball lovers everywhere.
