THAN A GAME
More Than a Game documents the incredible true story of basketball superstars LeBron James and the Akron Fab Five from their humble beginnings to national acclaim. They may have been the best high school basketball team ever. NBA superstar LeBron James, along with boyhood friends Sian Cotton, Dru Joyce III and Willie McGee began a journey that would take them from their local hometown streets to the world stage. Joined by Romeo Travis in high school, the five fused their talents and, with the help of dedicated coach Dru Joyce II, rewrote Ohio basketball history. More Than a Game chronicles the inspiring trials, tribulations and triumphs of five young men who became more than a team.
Critics have declared More Than a Game a slam dunk stating it “a moving tribute to enduring friendship” (USA Today), “a knockout of a sports documentary” (Los Angeles Times), “exhilarating” (Vibe.com), “fascinating” (Wall Street Journal) and “heartwarming and amazing…we recommend this movie to everyone” (Newsday). The DVD has a locker room full of exciting bonus materials including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the documentary, a music featurette and a featurette that examines the psychology of team sports. Featuring music from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Eminem, T.I. and Lil’ Wayne, More Than a Game is available on DVD and digital download on February 2, 2010.
