Ball Don't Lie - NBA

Thanks to our good friends at LIONSGATE and Yahoo! Movies, we now have our grubby little blogger paws on the official theatrical trailer for "More Than a Game," which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September.

To refresh your BDL memory, the documentary looks at how LeBron James took his St. Vincent-St. Mary high school team to the national championship and his subsequent rise to NBA stardom.

Check it out:

The plot: "Five talented young basketball players from Akron, Ohio star in this remarkable true-life coming of age story about friendship and loyalty in the face of great adversity. Coached by a charismatic but inexperienced player's father, and led by James, the "Fab Five's" improbable seven-year journey leads them from a decrepit inner-city gym to the doorstep of a national high school championship. Along the way, the close-knit team is repeatedly tested — both on and off the court — as James' exploding worldwide celebrity threatens to destroy everything they've set out to achieve together."

"More Than A Game" is directed by Kristopher Belman (who I had the chance to interview via e-mail) and is scheduled to hit select theaters on October 2nd. I recommend you circle that date on your calendar; this movie was right up there with "Hoops Dreams" for me and many others. Blog don't lie.
