We haven’t seen it yet but NBA great and Olympic hero Kevin Durant is involved in a new series on Apple TV+ called Swagger, which is based on his life. We think he’s also a producer but can’t confirm that.
Whatever his role, the story is semi autobiographical, paralleling everything Durant had to to do rise to greatness in the NBA.
Scout Tafoya is a solid critic we’ve been aware of for years and he gives this show massive raves.
It’s a series not a movie but either way you look at it, here are the best we’ve seen in no particular order:
- Blue Chips
- White Men Can’t Jump
- Hoop Dreams
- He Got Game
- Inside Moves
We want to put a special plug in for Inside Moves. It’s a bit dated now but it’s a movie with some real heart and soul and multiple redemptions, along with some real human sadness. It’s also quite funny and sweet.
