'Michael Jordan' was originally supposed to play the role that Bo Kimble went on to take. In the fall of 1998, the filmmakers went to courts with a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Jordan seeking at least $16 million in damages, citing the lack of Jordan as the cause of the film's box-office flop and the derailment of director Randall Fried, who in the words of their attorney, "should have been and would have been the next Steven Spielberg" if the film had been successful. Jordan countersued. The jury founded Jordan not liable and awarded him $50,000 in favor of his countersuit. See more »
This is a corny b-ball movie w/ bad acting and B-movie production value.
I didn't like this movie at all. The basketball action is weak, it is all done is slo-mo, and makes it really hard to watch. D.B Sweeny is a good actor, but his dialogue is so corny, it makes him unbearable. The "villain" in this movie is contrived, and the main character Truth, is a complete idiot. You don't feel sorry for him at all when he ruins his life. Features cameo by Hakeem Olajuwon, and Michael Jordan was supposed to be in it but backed out. Don't waste your time on this movie, if you want a good basketball movie see Above the Rim, Hoop Dreams, Hoosiers, or my personal favorite Blue Chips.
