Everything I’m doing from Thursday to Sunday is measured by the following questions: “What time does ___ start and who is playing now?” I love March Madness!
And all of those basketball dreams lead me to this list:
The Four Greatest Basketball Movies of All Time
- Hoosiers – Clearly, the best basketball movie ever made. I’m only slightly biased because I grew up in Indiana and my high school team won the 1994 State Championships.
- Hoop Dreams – (1994) The documentary which simultaneously helps you fall in love with high school basketball and the craft of documentary film making at the same time.
- White Men Can’t Jump – (1992) Wesley Snipes & Woody Harrelson in a basketball movie? Yes, please! I quote this movie all the time. Any time I receive unexpected money I proudly declare, “We goin’ Sizzler!“
- Coach Carter (2005) If this inspirational story doesn’t make you cry than you probably don’t like sports. I’m pretty sure Bobby Knight called Coach Carter to tell him to tone it down a little.
Agree? Disagree? What is your favorite basketball movie of all time?
