Storyline

This three-part documentary series provides a powerful inside look at the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the NBA. The series chronicles the modern history of the league, and how it became an incubator for many of its top athletes to grow their brands beyond the court and become cultural icons. By taking control of their own destinies, basketball players have helped to bring about social change and make their own statements in the current political climate.

Lebron fluff piece...
10 September 2020 | by tbuestrinSee all my reviews

Don't expect any actual questioning of Lebron....as the producer of this it really is just an infomercial for him. I'm frankly tied of hearing the opinions of athletes, celebrities, mass media pundits, etc, etc, etc. The scourge of the Information Age is that we are forced to hear everyone's opinions (including mine right now). News is no longer informative, it's ratings driven 24 hour editorial. So Laura Ingram has every right to tell him to stick to what he's good at...basketball...and leave the politics out of the game. But I also believe he has the right to spend his money and say what he wants...that's why he came out with this documentary as a response. But none of their opinions matter in the daily lives of most people.
