Glory Road

Word. I just came in this thread to specifically name those two movies.

I loved Coach Carter AND Glory Road.

Glory Road i teared up when the mother came to the coach to beg him to let her son play even though he could die.

I didnt tear up during Coach Carter but i still found the movie incredibly inspiring.

Then Juwanna Mann and White Men Can't Jump.

Above the Rim is awful.

Hoosiers is great. White Men Can't Jump is good. Glory Road would be so much better if it weren't made by Disney.

You're being overly generous with that assessment. The movie deserves a D grade.

Semi Pro, Hoosiers, Space Jam, White Man Can't Jump, He Got Game, Coach Carter, The Air Up There, Celtic Pride... Does Finding Forrester count? Great film right there.

The guy who said Like Mike needs to be taken out back and shot.

Hoosiers 2nd

Underrated comedy, Rebound was really stupid but had some very funny parts. No where near my top 5 or anything though

Forgot two movies from the '50s.

'The Harlem Globetrotters' and 'Go Man, Go', another Harlem Globetrotter movie.

And 'The Gambler' with James Caan is a great movie, and there is a basketball plotline that runs through it.
