    Off Topic Basketball documentaries

    Can anyone recommend some awesome basketball documentaries? Knicks ones would be cool but I enjoy any really.

    I've seen the Reggie Miller vs Knicks one, the Fab Five one, and Gunnin' for that #1 Spot. Think that's about it.

    Cheers!

    I know hoop dreams is on netflix, but I'm not sure about the others. (cancelled my account after they tried pulling that robbery, charging more money)

    I've found some good stuff at this site in the past, just search for documentary.

    That ESPN documentary on Len Bias was pretty damn good too. It's kind of a sad story, but its put together well.

    The only basketball documentary that i've seen come close to hoop dreams is the Vlade Divac 30 for 30. Worth watching if you haven't seen it already.

    Petrovic's story starting out was kind of similar to Lin (overlooked for various reasons), and each with a huge following from a unique fan base.

    Def Year of the Yao. That was very insightful.

    If that dude wasn't selectively bread, then Jeremy Lin isn't a massive virgin.
