NBA Withdrawal: 10 Basketball Movies to add to your NetFlix Queue

Day 2 of NBA Withdrawals continues and today its about movies and books! I love watching sports movies as much as I love watching the sports. I own every movie on this list and some have been purchased for a second time due to wear and tear :). Some of you may agree with the list and some may not so I’ll skip the babble and get on with it…

movies1 Hoosiers If you are a fan of the game and haven’t watched this movie you should stop reading this list!

movies2 He Got Game Two words: Denzel Washington – Another two words: Jesus Shuttlesworth. ’nuff said!

movies3 Love and Basketball It sounds like a chick flick… you may think it was a chick flick but I thought it was awesome!

movies4 Above the Rim Tupac, some great cinematography and a dramatic ending – One of Spike Lee’s better works

movies5 Coach Carter Feel good, Inspirational and the Samuel L Jackson factor bumped it up about 2 spots on my list

movies6 White Men Can’t Jump Even with Rosie Perez’s voice, bad 80’s wardrobe “It’s hard god damn work” not to like this movie.

movies7 The Air Up There Kevin Bacon, freshly footloose, heads to Africa to scout the talent in order to save his job – funny stuff ensues!

movies8 Blue Chips I had to put one of the totally cheesy movies on here and this one made the cut!

movies9 Glory Road True story about the first college to field an all black team and aside from the acting this movie has it all

movies10 Hoop Dreams The only Documentary on the list and even though the two guys never made it to the NBA this movie brings out all sorts of emotions.

Honorable Mentions
Forget Paris, Basketball Diaries, The Pistol, Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot, Through the Fire
