More Than a Game: Sneak Peek

He is one of NBA’s most impressive players today and considered as one of the greatest athletes of his generation. He won his first NBA Most Valuable Player Award only in his sixth season as a pro and he continues to break NBA records and receive honors to this day. Nothing seems to be able to stop the onslaught. His extraordinary skills have won him admiration and have made him an international icon. This unstoppable force is none other than the King himself, LeBron James. See how King James rose to stardom in "More Than a Game", the movie that documents his high school life before all the glitz and glamor. Read on to find out more.

Five talented young basketball players from Akron, Ohio star in this remarkable coming of age story about uncommon friendship in the face of unprecedented fame. Their coach is a hard-driving, charismatic but inexperienced player’s father. Their leader is future NBA superstar LeBron James. This is the “Fab Five’s” story, an improbable nine-year journey that takes them from a decrepit inner-city gym to the doorstep of a national high school championship. Along the way, the close-knit team is repeatedly tested both on and off the court as James’ unparalleled talent explodes into a worldwide phenomenon - even threatening to destroy everything they have set out to achieve together.

The movie combines a series of unforgettable one-on-one interviews with rare news footage, never-before-seen home videos and personal family photographs to bring this heartwarming and wholly American story to life.

The film was initially conceived by Co-Writer/Director Kristopher Belman as a tribute to his hometown of Akron, Ohio. A high school basketball team led by a young phenom named LeBron James had become the talk of the city, and Belman, a film student at Loyola Marymount University, decided to chronicle their season on camera. Not knowing that he is actually chronicling the life of a future superstar. After six years of shooting footage and interviewing players and their families, Belman realized he had the makings of a feature-length documentary.
