Storyline

Streetballers is for basketball, what Field of Dreams was for baseball. Defining street basketball as America's new favorite pastime, it is a story driven by passion, faith, and achieving goals. A story capturing the poetic nature of street basketball, highlighting the struggles endured on and off the court by the purest of athletes. Constantly searching for sanity in the midst of alcoholism, racism, and drugs, John Hogan and Jacob Whitmore, two junior college basketball players, find release and therapy while competing at one of the most competitive and poetic street courts in the U.S. Both men must spend an entire summer helping one another overcome their adversities. Their dedication and love for the game of basketball transcends from the playground courts into each of their dysfunctional households where the two boys play the constant role of the father figure. Pounding through life one day at a time, Jacob has no choice but to play in an underground league, constantly fighting to... Written by MSK

OK but nothing special
8 March 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Just watched this one and was kinda disappointed since i expected more. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad at all, it's just nothing special and the plot is very predictable, but still enjoyable. The acting is mediocre, Jimmy McKinney and Adrieanne Perez are both doing quite good in carrying it.

What makes this movie a 6/10 is the very good music during the whole movie. Really nice, just hope they will release a Soundtrack of it anytime soon.

So if you don't expect another He got game, watch it and you'll like it.
