Default Favorite hoops book/movie/documentary?

Whats your favorite basketball book/fictional movie/documentary and why?

Hoop Dreams-Gave a great look at 2 high school kids and what they went through during their high school and college playing days. Would love to know what happened to Arther Agee and William Gates. (I am about half way through Maravich's biography and this will be my favorite when its all said and done)

He Got Game-Jesus Shuttlesworth. Enough said.

Bobby Hurley Sr's "The Street Stops Here."-Maybe because I am a Duke fan I am biased, but I have a great amount of respect for what Hurley does. Most prep schools have beautiful campuses, facilities, etc. St Anthonys in New Jersey is far from that. He is a great mentor and creates change.

Hoop Dreams was great. I still watch it whenever it comes on. IFC recently voted it the best documentary film of all time.

I agree with He Got Game. I also like Blue Chips and The Air Up There.

Bill Simmons - The Big Book of Basketball. I'm not much of a book reader, but I finished this monster (725+ pages) in no time. I've even gone back to read it again. His unique viewpoint and sense of humor make this a must read for any fan of the game.

Nobody has said Hoosiers? Hoosiers is the greatest basketball movie of all time! By far my favorite one as well!

The Air Up There

Typical 90's movie with Kevin Bacon.

Have any of you guys seen "Rebound" with Martin Lawrence? It was one of the first movies I'd ever watched.

Hoop Dreams, He Got Game, and More Than a Game -- don't like Lebron anymore, but I was a reporter in Akron during his high school time and remember being at many of those events.

Book: The Book of Basketball by Bill Simmons, it's our Bible, you guys have to check it out!

Movie: Blue Chips

Documentary: Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks (this is a must see!!!) & More Than A Game (to all the LBJ haters, it's pretty good, seriously!)

Hoop Dreams, easily.

I've been a huge fan of the film since it was first released and must have watched it close to 20 times.

And this is a great chance for me to post photos of two cards that I sometimes forget I have in my collection...
