It could be something like the life of Stephon Marbury.

4 Play Off (1994)

History: streets of New York, a dealer of drugs, that embodies the rapper Tupac Amaru, and a basketball star of the neighborhood that, for now, is a security guard at an Institute. If you want to see similarities, Allen Iverson. The criminal tries to influence the player and, as in many movies, there are final duel on the Court. It has claims but it has a very normalito script, to the American.

6 gain in any way (1994)
Original title: Blue Chips
Director: William Friedkin
Starring: Nick Nolte
History: sports shenanigans with the background of college basketball and scenes of real moves. Do not miss to Shaquille O’Neal and Larry Bird if you want to continue to be a rising star role value. Good scenes of basketball, with many resources. It all begins when a coach loses the season for the first time… But then things change. A good story that is wanting.
7 Space Jam (1996)
Director: Joe Pytka
Starring: Michael Jordan
History: with Jordan, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck you need it to have a good time. Combine the cartoon of the Looney Tunes and a basketball star was a good idea. If you do need to win a game, only you have to call to Air, although it has withdrawn and be out there playing golf. A film to watch with kids and smile funny scenes and parties with the toons. They are all and the opposing team of monsters reminiscent of more than one player.
8 time Out (1991)
Original title: Heaven Is A Playground
Director: Randall Fried
Cast: Taunya Bounds, Terry Bradley, Cylk Cozart, Stavon Lovell Davis and Jim Dougherty
History: it is one of those films that is practically unknown because it was going to be the story of Michael Jordan, and at the end was Bo Kimble. He didn’t have great numbers at the box office, but it is a good drama in the South of Chicago following the book of the same title, with some more argumentative mess. Backdrop of underworld, drugs and people trying to do something good with the basketball. There we will see Hakeem Olajuwon.
9 Coach Carter (2005)
Original title: Coach Carter
Director: Thomas Carter
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson
Story: based on the real facts of coach Ken Carter Institute, which developed the Oliers Richmond in a champion with a few methods to rather strict. There are social criticism and education in depth, it is with some American topics. It seems rather to Hoosiers and Samuel L. Jackson made one of his best roles. A film without too much spectacle but very interesting.

Director: Eriq Salle
Starring: Don Cheadle
Story: is about the life of a basketball player real, Earl Manigault, known as the goat (The Goat) and was broadcast on us television channel. The player was on the doorstep of the NBA because of drugs.It is not a great film, the basketball scenes are of sufficient scraping, but can see Joe Smith and Kevin Garnett.
By the way, basketball films began in 1938 with ‘ Campus Confessions’ and in which appeared Hank Luisetti, the creator of a hand release. There is a good piece of Robert Altman, ‘ King Basketball’in 1952. In the seventies there are films like ‘Maurie’, ‘ Shirt/Skins’, ‘The Gambler’ (with Paul Sorvino and James Woods), ‘Mixed Company’, ‘ One on One’ (with Melanie Griffith), ‘Coach’ or ‘Fast Break’ (with former player Bernard King as the protagonist), but the films around the world arrive in 1979 with ‘ The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh’ and, above all, ‘Hoosiers’.
From there there are a lot of films, many of them in plan light comedy: ‘Of chest hair’, ‘Fast Break’, ‘Slam Dunk Ernest’ (with Abdul-Jabbar), ‘Bounce’ (Martin Lawrence), ‘A tribe on the Court’, ‘The pride of the Celtics’, ‘Eddie’ (with Whoopie Goldberg), ‘Air Bud’ (a dog and basketball or ‘A gang of height’ (1 and 2).)
And then we have another series of ‘Road to glory’, ‘ Basketball Diaries’ more serious films (Leonardo di Caprio), ‘Forget Paris’ (Billy Crystal and Debra Winger and many cameos), ‘ Pistol: The Birth of a Legend’ (on the ill-fated Maravich), ‘Final Shot’ (on Hank Gathers), ‘don’t stay back’ (directed by Jack Nicholson) or ‘love and basketball’. The last interesting, ‘Crossover’ (2006) about street basketball and underworld and ‘The dream of the street’, a documentary film based on a true story about two kids African life and his effort to play in the NBA.
