It is a pretty quiet time for hoops right now so I thought it would be interesting to see what people think about the best basketball movies ever made. I have included a list of ten movies that you can vote for as your all-time favorite but also please feel free to add your own lists. Let the debating begin:
Ebe's Top 5
1. Hoosiers
2. Hoop Dreams
3. Blue Chips
4. Rebound: The Earl Manigault Story
5. Semi-Pro

What about 'The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh'? A classic. Basketball Diaries was good too.

Trey I agree with you the slow motion dunking scene on the playground was worthy of an academy award for Dr J but I figured most of the people on this chatboard are too young to have ever seen this classic movie. I am not sure if you could even find it anymore but I would also recommend it.

Is Basketball Diaries up for consideration or is it too artsy? As far as the Dr J dunk scene is concerned, it was the biggest Oscar snub except for The Colour Purple starring Oprah and Whoopi

Hoosiers is great and hoop dreams is considered one of the top documentaries ever. but ebe you forgot some from the so bad they might be good catagory... Fast break starring gabe kaplin, spacejam, and lets not forget Teenwolf (not really a basketball movie but some great terrible movie basketball scenes).

I like Ebe's list. I go Hoosiers #1, Hoop Dreams #2 but got to go way back to "FastBreak" for #3 - classic!

Glad to see so much love for Fast Break as it truly is Gabe Kaplan at his finest trying to start up the Catwalada University program. I checked on youtube for a clip of this movie and discovered that someone has downloaded the entire movie in 8 parts so if you haven't seen it check it out. As far as Basketball Diaries is concerned I guess I didn't really classify it as a basketball movie and that is why I didn't include it. Keep those suggestions coming.

He Got Game.

American Streetballers is my sleeper pick. Look it up.
