LeBron: the movie

11.25.2008

Lionsgate have acquired the rights to MORE THAN A GAME, a documentary about the varsity team at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, who travel a winding road from a rundown gymnasium to national glory and NBA riches, seeking to remain a tight-knit quintet even as LeBron James becomes a megamillionaire. The film is said not to be merely a record of James' achievements but as a feel-good story of overcoming adversity.

Sweet. Now LeBron has his own movie. He's talk, dark, handsome, rich, awesome at sport, and he's my age. What the hell is this guy's deal? He thinks he's so damn great. I don't advocate violence, but I was thinking a kick-ass thing to do to LeBron James would be to ask him for his autograph and then when he was distracted, to sick a pack of hungry bears on him. Just to bring him down to size. But now I picture it happening and he just clunks the bears' heads together like Schwarzenegger at the start of TRUE LIES. And then he crushes the ensuing PETA protest with a combination of his winning smile and mind javelins.
Extra Tidbit: James is commonly known as "King James".

I would much rather see a dramatic film about LeBron and all of the preferential treatment and trouble he had gotten into in high school. You don't hear people talk about how he would have been ineligible to play college ball.

really?

I love Lebron James... he's stastically the best player in the league and will be one of the greatest of all time someday. But do we need a movie about him?

How about just watch highlights of him single handedly beating the Pistons.

i wouldnt say that LeBron is the same caliber of player that MJ was. Lebron is a physical monstrosity. he is huge, long arms, and as fast as any player in the league. MJ wasnt bigger than everybody he ever faced, he wasnt faster, he wasnt stronger, ... he was simply better. that said, King james is a treat to watch and will most likely own most if not all scoring records. now all that is left is for him to win a ring.

Saw this at TIFF this year and one of my favorite flicks of '08, excellent documentary following Lebron and his basketball team from childhood to present...if you dig hoops or feel good sports movies this is right up your alley.

As tired as I am of sports commentators calling players "the best in the world," (usually in reference to Kobe or James) it's hard not to agree when watching him play. He's a true artist, a player the caliber of Jordan whose team simply hasn't stepped up yet. That aside, i'm not sure how many mediocre sports films I can take. It seems like for every good one there are a half-dozen bad ones. I honestly can't think of the last good b-ball movie they made. Fingers crossed that it's more 'Hoosiers'
