Today, we aired the first of a three-part conversation about the film More Than A Game. The documentary takes a rare glimpse into the pre-NBA life of basketball superstar LeBron James. It focuses on the player's early hardship and determination, and the high school coach and teammates who rallied around him to help see him through. Together, they created a small fellowship of athletes, if you will, if not a band of brothers.
We began the series today with film director Kristopher Belman. You'll have to listen to the full conversation for the juice. But imagine beginning to follow someone — a promising youngster, at best — as part of a short film school project, only later to learn see that person rise to become an international star and one of the most celebrated basketball players alive. You get the point.
Tomorrow, join us for a conversation with the man himself, LeBron James, his former high school coach Dru Joyce and his high school brethren.
