Love & Basketball (2000)

With a new NBA season tipping off on Tuesday, we've got basketball on the brain. To get our heads in the game, we put together a list of our top 10 movies about that baller life. 

We kick it off with Love & Basketball, Gina Prince-Bythewood's drama about neighbors-turned-competitors-turned-lovers, starring Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps. Life adorably imitated art earlier this year when real-life NBA star Kevin Durant proposed to his girlfriend, WNBA player Monica Wright, who even shares the exact name as Lathan's character in the film!
