More Than a Game (2008)
« on: March 04, 2013, 07:44:38 pm »

With previous Documentaries like Hoop Dreams and The Heart Of The Game centering around Basketball, it was usually tracking "unknown" kids with one goal in mind: to make it to the big show. With More Than A Game, it's the complete opposite and what makes it truly unique to watch. This doc is about Lebron James and the 'Fab 5' and the building of a High School Basketball Dynasty from Akron, Ohio.

The film actually reminds me more of Dogtown Town and Z-Boys than anything else with current interviews with the principal players in involved talking about and retelling the story of their drive to become National Champions. It's a really fascinating film to watch, to see this "little kid" that possess such amazing talent at the ripe old age of 17 and see how Lebron "The Brand Name" became what we all know him as now. As a doc and as a time capsule, I highly recommend this as a Rent.

A little fact about why I decided to do a mini Basketball DVD marathon. It was actually spurred on with the rumor that Michael Jordan is actually contemplating coming out of retirement at the age of 50, just so that he can challenge Lebron on an NBA court to settle who really is the greatest of all time.
