Figures hardly come more larger-than-life than LeBron James, the Fighting Irish alum who (as the world over has come to know) first caught national sports media attention during his high school stint and has since become one of most celebrated and recognizable stars in all of sports, let alone in basketball. With the knowledge of James's ultimate NBA fairy tale fate, the temptation would be to focus the film solely on his rise, but his story is duly treated as but one of the threads borne out of what was originally the "Fab Four"--James, "Little" Dru Joyce III, Willie McGee, and Sian Cotton, whom we see in some rare home video honing their individual skills and team chemistry from way back when they were pre-teens.Read more ›
The highlight and pivotal point of this film, "More Than A Game," was when the team (St. Vincent-St. Mary) coach gave a serious speech to his young men and devout his faith in prayers (along with them) in a call to the Almighty Saviour. Both messages developed a strength of character to the young men whose lives are expectedly in a vacuum filled with wild excitements (promiscuity, alcohol and more). This to me was a turnaround for the young men. Although it was the coach's last and final year to train them (in their last year of high school), Coach Dru Joyce and the team thought they would win the championship. They didn't! BUT, because of their hardwork, faith, character (thanks to Coach Dru Joyce), friendship and love, these young men pulled it off and TODAY we still see the excitement some of them display. What an incredible film. I'm happy to have attain it as a gift; a gift my son will (and has said) will treasure forever. He's inspired by this great documentary. Great work! Bravo to the executors for producing a fabulous history of the St. Vincent-St.Mary's basketball team, "Irish".
Friendship proves to be the catalyst to be great for one another. Just pure unconditional love for a game these guys love "Basketball"! Wow great story!

I like how they leave out the 5th starter and don't interview him once in the movie. That was funny.Published 29 days ago by Dom
