In the early 1970s, there were two
basketball leagues in America – while the NBA ruled the
sport, the ABA was defined by its outlaw flair and
sensational showmanship. In the comedy Semi-Pro, Will
Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, the one-hit singing sensation
behind “Love Me Sexy,” who relishes his role as owner, coach
and power forward for the fictional Flint, Michigan Tropics
of the ABA.
But when the NBA announces a plan to merge with the ABA and
only take with them the four teams with the best records,
disbanding the rest of the ABA squads forever, Moon,
assisted by former NBA benchwarmer Ed Monix (Woody
Harrelson), decides to rally his motley team for an unlikely
eleventh-hour pursuit of acceptance and glory.
