Teenage players: Teen Wolf, of chest hair

Michael j. Fox could be the player of lesser stature who has known basketball, but is that of chest hair (Teen Wolf, 1985) he transformed into werewolf and could crush and enter basket as an exhalation. The film has been interpreted asmetaphor for changes of various kinds, although we cannot remain – and this track have it in the title Spanish-in the passage from childhood to adulthood. Of course, that teenage viewers of the time stayed with the competition and adventure, as it should be.


If we stay within the tone fun, designed especially for the younger, are also to Kevin Bacon in the skin of a coach who has to travel to Africa to recruit a great player in a tribe on the Court (The Air Up There, 1994).

Shaq attack manages to win in any way

Nick Nolte is the most important actor who reflects the poster win in any way (Blue Chips, 1994), but next to his spelling of a name that may be even more big and famous, that of Shaquille O’Neal, the basketball player from the NBA that during his years in active gave both play both outside and within the courts. The film returns to focus on the figure of a coach to tell the story of a University team that hires Major League players.


Other renowned actors have lent his face to appear in films on basketball, as Sean Connery in Finding Forrester (Finding Forrester, 2000), film which could enjoy an own section within the list, given its director and performers: Gus Van Sant, Murray Abraham, Anna Paquin, etc… However, the subject of basketball is more secondary in this film than in others.The same thing happens to the starring Leonardo DiCaprio, a rebel newspaper (The Basketball Diaries, 1995), whose true central theme are the dangers of drugs.

Whites do not know it to get… or they did not know

In the early 1990s, it became very famous film of Ron Shelton whites do not know it put (White Men can’t ‘ t Jump, 1992), who knows if for the successful translation to the Spanish or if you have Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson andRosie Perez. The Street basketball players of different races, which had always competed under the rings and had clashed personally, come together to increase their chances. It is clear that the white inferiority which at that time was so manifest as it is not as evident today, with the participation of many European players in the NBA.


The best basketball movies, Hoosiers: more than idols

Gene Hackman was the coach of the basketball team in Hoosiers: more than idols (Hoosiers, 1986). Next to it wereBarbara Hershey, Dennis Hopper, completing the cast of this drama based on a true story, which tells the team from a small town in Indiana came to the State finals in 1954. The epic is the main ingredient of this film on redemptions individual and team victories.


Basketball version movie comedy, Will Ferrell’s semi-pro

Comedy semi-professional: balls team (Semi-pro, 2008), of course, also is represented in this list. This film is played byWill Ferrell and André Benjamin. Woody Harrelson, as reputed currently thanks to True Detective, reappears in this list practicing one of his real interests.

Within this genus, found some incursions of the Wayans Brothers in the specialty, as the sixth man (The Sixth Man, 1997), Play Off (Above the Rim, 1994) or Celtic Pride (1996), where he accompanies them Dan Aykroyd. Comedy also appears in the option rebound (Rebound, 2005), film in which Martin Lawrence made coach for a team of losers.

Semi pro

Believe In Me, the under-representation of women’s basketball

Women have made great careers under the rings, however the film seems to prefer the spectacularity of the male basketball.One of the few films that reflected the female faction is Believe In Me (2006), featuring Samantha Mathis as one of the players of a team of Institute of a small conservative town during the 1960s. Jeffrey Donovan plays a young man who wants to carve out a career as an instructor and is frustrated when they force you to train women, rather than the men’s team that had set his sights.

By them (hot flashes) (The Hot Flashes, 2013), also focuses on sport practiced by women, but in this case where the team protagonist is made up of middle-aged ladies and the opposite occurs in the powerful Mac (The Mighty Macs, 2009), film in which Carla Gugino plays the coach of a girls team in a nuns school.


Recent documentaries and Heroes gold

To recommend movies about basketball recent, would have to opt for the genre of documentary, which is what is being done mainly in these decades about the sport of rings. For example, Magic & Bird (2010), The Dream Team (2012),American Streetballers (2010), Kobe Doin’ Work (2009), Broke (Star broke) (2012), The Doctor (2013) Magic Johnson gives the face (2012), brothers and foes: Divac and Petrovic (2010), the decision of Michael Jordan (2010), Linsanity (2013), No Crossover (the trial of Allen Iverson) (2010), More Than a Game (2008), The Other Dream Team (2012) Chris Herren , a junkie in the basket (2011), Reggie Miller against the Knicks (2010) Michael Jordan to the Max (2000), the style of Paul Westhead (2010) or the Len Bias tragedy (2009).

Of these, I would highlight Heroes of gold (2011), a film about the Spanish selection that has step by step how Spain reissued a Eurobasket win. Packed with exclusive statements of the protagonists, this documentary directed by Kiko Martin, features the road travelled by the Spanish International since the beginning of the N-11 route to the celebration in Callao. We already know that the Spanish basketball team is governed by values that we can see with greater depth in the film.


Now you are ready or prepared to accompany the Spanish team with the Tour citizen 0,0and give one of the relay when the ball passes through your city. The list is not include all titles on basketball, but only some of them and, as I said, is not placed in order from best to worst nor vice versa, not there is management.

CAI Zaragoza ends the season with Fireworks

Partido entre el CAI Zaragoza y el UCAM Murcia. .EFE

CAI Zaragoza beat the UCAM Murcia by a spectacular 108-74 in a match that served as a perfect end of feast of a season to remember. Now, Valencia is waiting in the ‘play-off’.

Fireworks to end the regular season. The perfect close to a course to remember . The first major campaign of the CAI Zaragoza. The Aragonese were given a scorer feast in their last League match againstUCAM Murcia (108-74). A real party in which Prince Philip could enjoy yours as a prelude to the ‘play-off’. Qualifiers for the title that will measure the Aragonese, fifth in the table, with Valencia Basket, which ended fourth to impose its commitment on La Bruixa d’Or.

The meeting between Zaragoza and Murcia only can understand from the standpoint that he faces a picture released and ambitious with another that is virtually holiday. A combination that can only end in a wide victory of the first, as it happened. Thus, little the pinkos tightened on defense, managed to walk away with ease on the scoreboard.Running several spectacular actions along the way. The wards of José Luis Abós so much that, at times, seemed to republish the famous ‘showtime’ popularized the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980s. Fun, fast, and extremely offensive game that crushed a UCAM whose mind was somewhere else.

The competitiveness of the party just lasted a few minutes. What a brief exchange of baskets that came to place a tie at 11 in the electronic.To start from there, and still in the first quarter, the Socialist Group imposed a partial 16 – 0 which already assured him the victory he needed to get fifth place. It would not be the only disproportionate advantage who would get along party.

With Murcia yielded, it was the moment to see the less usual. EspeciallyVladimir Golubovic. The pivot, signed to replace the injured Norel,might not have a best debut in its new home. Spectacular party of the new ‘five’ Aragon, whose numbers are simply spectacular. In total, 17 so many and 7 rebounds for assessment 27. Business card which presented only a failure in the shot.

Comparisons are odious, but inevitable, the best that can be said of the Montenegrin giant is that he knew how to maintain production that used to offer Norel. “I am not Henk, but I will give my best to help,” again repeated in the press room. Certainly he did. Once seen with more minutes, Golubovic hinted at in defense as a hard player. Tall and strong, in attack asserted very well your body. Especially before posts smaller than he as Lewis or Tillie.

Also very well played Jospeh Jones. As the global team, on the other hand. American Center, which holds responsibility for a step forward for the final stretch of the course, completed 20 of valuation. Indoor play, with injured Fontet, was completed by Pablo Aguilar. The captain, in line of their last meetings, returned to offer a display in their justified bid to the selection. Finally, the Granada ended with 13 points, six rebounds and four recoveries for 23 of valuation. Simply magnificent.

There was much more to highlight of the meeting, which had its biggest point of excitement to see when locals were able to overcome the three digits on the scoreboard. Llompart did with a triple which was celebrated by the Harrow as a goal. It is true that the UCAM Murcia, after the descent, had tightened more in defense. Rather than not imported to the CAI.

Now, Zaragoza face the most beautiful challenge of the season.Valencia hopes in the ‘play-off’ with the advantage of field in their favor. Nothing can intimidate a set able to excite and thrill like Fireworks in Washington.

Moncho Fernández: The Alchemist who conquered Compostela

By Miriam Fernández ( mirianfdezv ) who has read The Alchemist PDF by Paulo Coehlo well understood his message: “When a person really wants something, the whole universe conspires so that you can realize your dream Just learn to listen to the dictates of the heart.”. And the heart of Moncho Fernández has felt like big dreams, individually and collectively were met. His successes have created a new illusion in Santiago de Compostela. Alchemist is also “He who turns lead into gold.” The nickname was coined for the first Once a friend who works in Marca.com, Enric Corbella, to praise his ability to transform theory into smaller teams winning teams. The key is to create good human relations on their computers, through his personality gets the commitment of its players. As Moncho himself has said, the true alchemy“is the ability to bring us all eses early as flag over our lives” . Values ​​such as work, humility and commitment led him to touch the heaven in a city that is one of the most beloved and respected people. Prophet in his own land.

The best news was published two days ago during a visit of the staff and coaching staff to the headquarters of Endesa in As Pontes. Moncho Fernández renewed for two seasons as coach of Obradoiro. His greatest desire is to settle the team in the top flight of basketball. “We will do our best for that boat in which you put so much hope, effort and money to come to fruition,” he said gratefully. The captain will point the way . Raúl López, president, also had words of affection for him: “The results are important, but so are other things like values ​​and he has managed part of the history of this club” . Certainly, the fans will considered the ideal to continue due to his career, involvement and identification with the person club project.

Ward Moncho López
His story has happy ending in the present but to achieve prestige was not easy.
Interestingly, his first memory of basketball is at 6 years old pavilion Sar, when he went with his father to see the Obradoiro. During her childhood she practiced the sport but soon realized his inability to play well, so that at age 17 he began training the first school team Peleteiro in studying.“For me it was never a dream to be professional coach, it was just something that did not raise me. The dream of my life was to teach history and coach basketball “ .
His final dive came from the hand of Moncho Lopez, who gives in 2000 the opportunity to be his assistant in the CBA, in Gijón Basketball. “I told myself, let’s try and have this experience, if the thing had just wrong at least since he had lived.Approach was not a priority in my life “ .Learning by side Moncho was instrumental in his career to expand knowledge to be better coach, so he continued with him until the 2005/2006 season in which they went to the Milk River Breogán.
And it was time to face the path alone, in the Cadiz CB Villa de Los Barrios, a small population of just over 20,000 inhabitants. In three seasons, he and his crew managed a team that was only thinking of staying in the league Adecco Oro were dreaming with a historic promotion to the ACB. They were also the only ones who have led the Villa to contest a Prince Cup. And the ones that have led him to play a “playoff” climb. “The truth is that in Los Barrios amazing chemistry between the audience and gave the team because he was a fighter group” . In the auger stand still keep a great memory of the Galician technician:“Perhaps there is much good that Moncho coaches, but there are few workers like him and is the only one who has made ​​us touch the sky.” .
The experience served as a showcase and shuttle. Perhaps few know that Moncho could work coach with Ettore Messina Real Madrid, but ultimately rejected the proposal. “I always say the same thing, a coach just is not him but personal circumstances, which would mean at that time to go Madrid was what stopped me to accept the offer, it was a enrome pride they should rest upon me “ .
That summer of 2009 the Alchemist also sounded as a possible coach for the newly created Xacobeo Blu: Sens Obradoiro, but eventually ended up in Murcia. However, the dream of leading the team Murcia ACB was declining at the rate reached defeats. A partial 2-9 wins and losses and the fact that the bottom team in the league assumed his dismissal as coach.Moncho had learned another lesson on managing the locker room.
The dinner that changed the course of Obradoiro
When Moncho joined the “Work” the situation was very different than it is today. Still bleeding wound descent. In addition, institutional instability did shake the foundations of the club. But all agreed something had to work to restore hope to the large crowd that had forged his support remained intact.
We had to get up, and he was chosen. Nobody better than a man of the earth. “I always say the same, my name or surname if I can change but the place where I was born I can not change, I compostelano and I’m very proud of it, at first it is a personal motivation and everything involved for me and my emotional environment, makes everything changed, the whole day is special, it is the team that first saw him play “ .
It was the then manager, Chete Pazo, responsible for placing their trust in Moncho and convince him to accept the challenge. “I Ficho by the Obradoiro practically when they offered me. At a dinner we have a meeting a couple of hours and good stretches, 5 or 6 hours it takes dinner-meeting saw who trusted in my work, and I was flattered and delighted to accept the project “ .

From the time when he began working has been writing chapters in the history of Compostela computer. During the Gold Adecco team was able to match the best winning streak in the history of the category, then conquer the Prince Cup against his former team. But most important was that the purpose of ascent was fulfilled. Although the Playoff, basketball was right and returned to Santiago and Galicia to the place they deserved. “The beauty of this club with history but few years in the top flight is that everything we get makes us enter with gold lettering in the club’s history. Each challenge opens more doors “ . One of the most experienced technicians LEB Oro was prepared to succeed at last in the CBA. “The most important game of our history was when we beat Valencia at home and kept category, something we had never gotten”The award more especially sleep he dreamed an entire city had come true.
And what about this season. With almost 700,000 euros within the set budget has achieved the best balance of wins and losses. The goal of permanence is closer every day. The sad note is currently no classification for the Cup being held these days in Vitoria. Although it sounds like a cliché, basketball was not fair, the difference was a ball at the last second would not go. “We have to move on. It was a luxury we have been fighting for a place in the Cup, but we must now rise “ Moncho said after the game.
De Alchemist Pontepedriña to Pregonero de Compostela
On the evening of July 20 Moncho Fernandez was asked to give the starting signal for the Festival of the Apostle. That day conquered another part of the Obradoiro. It was not a simple speech, or a proclamation more. It was a prize to the team values ​​every day trying to convey to his players and those who vibrate with them. Some principles that underlie their sporting achievements but also vital. The pride of Compostela, as it said the “most beautiful city in the world” , where he was “lucky to be born” .

Yours is largely victory to rekindle the magic of basketball in Santiago. “Much playing basketball in the city for many years. Has recovered a sentiment that was probably asleep. The work has always been closely linked to the city and so the club and the fans quickly Sar have been linked to the club “ .
But it would be unfair to speak only head coach. His inseparable companions are an important part of success. It is the triumph of teamwork. Victor Perez and Gonzalo Rodriguez have extensive experience in the highest categories and are responsible for making their own scouting and rival.“The day fiche in San Antonio Spurs hope to have the budget to take me to my assistants with me” jokes Moncho. ” I have the best coaching staff than any coach in the world can dream “ .
The Obradoiro is a family in which all are integrated. Alchemy applied to basketball. Gaining the commitment of his players from the personal. “There is something very nice for a coach when you find players you’ve trained, you keep trying as a coach, that’s very gratifying because it means that they have been someone important in your life “ .
“The stability of the club, stencil work and support of the fans. If these three pillars go together, we’re going to get “ . Moncho Fernández, the cornerstone of this Obradoiro fly with your feet on the ground. As the protagonist of Coehlo is a hero who seeks his treasure, chasing their dreams. Whatever happens, your name will be engraved in block letters in the history of this club and this city. As he said during the celebration of the rise in the Caldeira do Sar: “Simply, thank you” .
