i cant really think of too

i cant really think of too many basketball movies that i liked. The 6th Man which starred the Wayans brothers was kinda funny. It was about two brothers being teammates for the washington huskies i believe and one dies and came back as a ghost trying to help his brother win the championship. He got game was pretty good too.

1a) He Got Game
1b) Hoop Dreams
2) Coach Carter (surprised no one said this one yet)
3) Hoosiers (very very very surprised no said this one yet)
4) Above the Rim

This is list is my favorites, if it were best I would put Hoosiers at one because it's simply a classic.

Hoosiers and Coach Carter

Hoosiers and Coach Carter are 6 and 7 on my list, respectively. I know a lot of people love Hoosiers, but I guess I just didn't really blend in with that culture. Plus, I haven't seen it in a really long time (at least 3 years).

ballallday, the goat is not

ballallday, the goat is not his real name. If you had the littlest bit of knowledge you would know his name is Earl Manigault, and that the GOAT stood for (Greatest Of All Time).

OJJ, we're both from the north, not the midwest. You're right it is not our culture, but Hoosiers was instrumental for all the other basketball movies. The message Hoosiers gives is similar to all the other basketball movies messages.

That movie was called Rebound, if I'm not mistaken.

I like He Got Game, Above the Rim, Space Jam and Rebound.

That's about it.

calling out people for their knowledge when you're the one who is incorrect LMAO..... his nickname was GOAT because it sounded like Manigault, Greatest of all time is some shiit that came about in the last decade or so, as a matter of fact I think that started with LL Cool J and transformed into all kinds of bull&$#%#&@!.

Manigault was a shy kid

Manigault was a shy kid growing up. When Earl "The Goat" Manigault was going to school, kids would ask him his name, and he would usually mutter something like "Nannygoat." After a while, his classmates just started calling him "The Goat."

Anybody remember Cornbread,

Anybody remember Cornbread, Earl, and Me with Lawrence Fishburne and Jamaal Wilkes? That movie was beyond awesome. I haven't seen it since I was 10. Most dramatic shooting scene EVER.

Hoop Dreams

The best basketball movie ever. Followed by Hoosiers. Many others that I like, but those two are in a class by themselves.

I was skeptical at first, but tli232 complained about how no money was repeatedly flagging me for nonsense, so it's possible that his account got suspended.

bobbyb, this is the point of the thread where the straight line starts to curve into the "strange" quadrant of the graph. Check this thread again tomorrow afternoon, around 3; the line should be straight again by that time.
