Three men, three dreams. It's 1976 in Flint, Michigan. Jackie Moon's American Basketball Association team languishes in last place, with few fans in the seats. Jackie dreams of a merger with the NBA. A tough-minded point guard named Monix is at the end of his career; he's played on the champion Celtics but accepts a trade to Flint to be close to Lynn, the love of his life. Clarence "Coffee" Brown dreams of stardom: he's the Tropics' best player, but he's a hotdog who doesn't value teamwork. When the trio learns that a merger is in the works that won't include the Tropics, they pull the team together to try to achieve the impossible. Can dreams come true in Flint? Written by
During a jump-ball sequence, a "Spalding" logo appears on the ball. Rawlings manufactured the ABA's red, white, and blue basketballs. However, Spalding currently holds the rights to the names and logos of the now-defunct ABA, and supplies basketballs to the current ABA (formerly known as ABA2000, unrelated to the original American Basketball Association).

At the end of the credits, Will Ferrell's voice can be heard calling, "Precious? Here Dewey." See more »
I was pretty hilarious when they started shooting all around with that loaded gun. But that was it. I absolutely disliked the whole cheap and not so funky - thing. It is a big disappointment because I like Will so much -especially older Night at the Roxbury and Blades of Glory. And there... well, it wasn't so much fun after all. Tarantino would have made it look more gloomy, Ben Stiller dirtier, Sean Penn more moralistic for sure, but there... oh my ! Will Ferrell really didn't work on this one, I can't believe this ! Is there even a script ? I mean, it looks like a bad joke : a movie about losers hiring a former champ who's not even one, is actually a movie with losers in it -no actor can really play basketball except that black dude, right?- casting a 'real'actor -the same Harrelson- who must have felt pretty bored the whole time. What a shame, Will ! Never again !
