Next thing you know I put together this here list.

Before you start reading, and disagreeing, let me just say that this list is based on movies that I've actually seen. I absolutely acknowledge that a movie like He Got Game or Hoop Dreams belongs on a list a great b-ball movies, but I've never seen them, so I can't really comment on them. Let me also say that I realize calling some of the following movies 'basketball movies' is a bit of a stretch. To that I say sorry, not sorry - this is my list, my choices.
