    Lenny Cook, The Long Lost #1 Prospect

    I figured this was a very interesting tidbit on a movie coming out featuring Lenny Cook, and Produced by Joakim Noah, with the talk of all of these hyped players coming out, i think this is a real eye opener to the players that you cant just live off potential. you have to put in the work and dedicate yourself to the game.



    In 2001, Lenny Cooke was the No. 1 ranked high school basketball player in America. The new film Lenny Cooke reveals why his promising career took a nose dive right as LeBron James' career took off.

    Young NBA hopefuls today face similar pitfalls of hype and fame, and Cooke hopes his story will help steer players like Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker away from those career-ruining choices.

    Cooke's longtime friend Joakim Noah wants to show the basketball world this cautionary tale and agreed to executive produce the film.

    Lenny Cooke is directed by filmmaking brothers Joshua and Benny Safdie and is produced by Adam Shopkorn.

    The film opens for a week in Louisville, January 10-16. It will continue to be shown in select cities through January and February (see schedule and trailer at LennyCookeMovie.com).

    Dang. Never heard of that guy. How did he go undrafted? Was he out of shape?
    It seems like a good tale for the youngsters to watch and make sure their heads are on straight.
