    I forgot it.. Billy Crystal..One very funny scene that I can't mention here. One I can is when he has a meltdown & throws multiple players out of the game.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    "Eddie" with Whoopi Goldberg. She took over a whole NY Knicks franchise I believe.

    And if yall really on top of things then you remember "Air Bud" and "Like Mike" with Lil Bow Wow. Dang this list keeps growing.

    Although it's a documentary, perhaps outside the frame of this thread, Hoop Dreams is the best basketball movie I have ever seen.

    I was prepared to not like it that much, having some faulty notion that these kids were basketball privileged and not worthy of my empathy.

    The movie blew me away. I loved these kids and their families. The film was real and gritty and showed the tough life these kids and their families had in Chicago.

    There's a follow-up to the movie as well. Life didn't go as expected but didn't go horribly for the kids they followed.
