Plot Summary

Five talented young basketball players from Akron, Ohio star in this remarkable true-life coming of age story about friendship and loyalty in the face of great adversity. Coached by a charismatic but inexperienced player's father, and led by future NBA superstar LeBron James, the "Fab Five" improbable seven-year journey leads them from a decrepit inner-city gym to the doorstep of a national high school championship. Along the way, the close-knit team is repeatedly tested-both on and off the courtas- James' exploding worldwide celebrity threatens to destroy everything they've set out to achieve together. More Than a Game combines a series of unforgettable one-on-one interviews with rare news footage, never-before-seen home videos, and personal family photographs to bring this heart-wrenching and wholly American story to life.

more than a game

best movie ever

More Than a Game

Though I do not watch a lot of sports-this documentary was excellent. It follows a group of young men who played basketball together culminating in a string of championship wins in high school against all controversies and odds.

An important theme was dedication, friendship, and teamwork while facing these insurmountable odds; and being coached and mentored by a dedicated and selfless person, who was a also a father figure for some of these kids. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who desires to see an inspirational documentary that will make you feel elated after watching this well-made program.

worth every penny
