Iverson

Of course I’m going to say watch this one. I’m from Newport “Bad Newz Va and just knowing someone from where I’m from, who lived in the same part of town as me made me a fan, even back when he was playing in Georgetown. If Jordan influenced how players played and changed the way endorsements were handled then Iverson changed the look and vibe as well as forced The NBA to make rules to keep things marketable to those fans not from the hood, like how I said that without saying that. Great Documentary about a Hall Of Fame player who deserves so much more respect from The NBA.
The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened?

This is a documentary about all the confusing that went into the making of Superman Lives. The move would have had followed the death of Superman comics and starred Nicholas Cage and directed by Tim Burton. The documentary is great and just watching it makes me want to see actual footage of the film. I don’t think Superman Lives would have been as well received as the Batman movie Burtaon did which brought The Caped Crusader back.
The Other Dream Team

This documentary is about the epic story of the Lithuania team that played in 1992 ‘s Olympics. The story dates back to stunning defeat of The USA team in 88‘ by Russia which had Lithuania players on it. The story goes even beyond basketball as the movie starts out more political and that fight for Lithuania’s independence rides side by side with rise of Lithuania’s players becoming globally recognized so much so that two players from the team were drafted in the NBA.
