Would say He Got Game but the ending pissed me off too much where Ray Allen threw a ball or something and it somehow landed in the same area as Denzel Washington. Lame.

I haven't honestly watched a lot of basketball movies, but Hoop Dreams would be up there for sure. And He Got Game was a solid movie.

After those two... I dunno... I did enjoy White Men Can't Jump, but I wouldn't say is was a 'great' movie... just a funny one.

Hawk did you actually post your favs

nah, Hoosiers is for sure my favorite, but those aren't actually my favorite basketball movies. Not sure what are. I honestly thought Hoop Dreams was totally overrated, I did like Glory Road, but mostly because of the true story portion of it. Teen Wolf is a childhood favorite I will never let go of, it barely has anything to do with basketball. Basketball Diaries I love, but again, mostly about drugs, not the game. I would have to look up all the movies I saw to make a real top 3 list, but it will indeed start with Hoosiers. White Men Can't Jump was entertaining, but I wouldn't call it a great movie.

I'm sure Blue Chips has been mentioned already, but dont want to read through all the pages.

It stars Shaquille Oneal, and Penny Hardaway, as Blue Chip prospects. A fictional university, with a tradition of winning, has become a poor team recently. The coach goes and tries to seek out Blue Chip recruits to play for him, but finds it dificult, because other universities are paying the players under the table...so, a booster for the protagonist school, decides to pay these blue chip athletes as well, to get them to play for his school.

on top of that, it has Bobby Hurley, Calbert Cheaney, Allan Houston, and some other great players.

On top of that, it came around a time when college basketball was one of the greatest sports in the world. Players stayed 4 years, and March Madness was absolutely loaded with stars. It also was created shortly after Michigans fab 5, which I am sure was part of the inspiration of the story.

Don't even get me started on that **** dude. I can't even identify with college basketball anymore. I think the talent level is pathetic compared to those days. I mean, living in Minny, it was Big Ten country, and you had Cheaney, Big Dog, Respert, Woolridge, Jackson, Webber, Rose, Robinson, Rice, and so many more.

Hmm, interesting point on the Fab 5 maybe having an influence on that movie. I can buy that.

Lol your right. Which makes it so much worse. It looks like an abandoned building, where they conveniently placed a court on the top floor. Then to make matters worse there's a very suspect looking window right behind the basket. What a horrible way to die.
