Great story

Sad that he died so young.

Average Rating:(5.0)out of 5 stars

This movie is timeless as far relevance. It teaches about hard work and conflict resolution. The subject matter is basketball, but it teaches so much more than merely teamwork. If you're looking for a great movie this is one of them.

Average Rating:(5.0)out of 5 stars
