It's Friday. Game 4 of the nail-biting NBA Finals is tonight. While most of your pre-game plans might involve staking out a spot at your local bar and saying a prayer for King James and his squad, we have an alternate suggestion: watch the short film Game, starring Los Angeles Lakers legend-turned-actor Rick Fox and a bunch of kids who are one or two projects away from becoming the next big thing.
Game, directed by Jeannie Donohoe, produced by The Weinstein company and funded by Lexus, features Fox coaching a team of high school prospects, including one standout player hiding a big secret. The film will make you fall in love with ball and believe in underdogs at a time when most of us (especially Cleveland Cavaliers fans) really need it.
