"Basketball is my favorite sport. I like the way they dribble up and down the court!" If you're a basketball fan, there's a chance you've seen a few basketball movies on the movie and TV screen. 94% of people can't name all these basketball films. Can you?
Basketball was created by James Naismith in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1891. From there, the sport would go on to be played all around the world, predominantly in the United States. Countless of films have been made around the sport. How many of them have you seen?
You might prefer the '90s classic of White Men Can't Jump or the kid-friendly Air Bud. Do you like a little romance mixed in with the sport? You were probably watching the 2000 film Love & Basketball. The following years would bring in Coach Carter and Glory Road. Can you recognize all these films from an image?
Do you remember the 1996 movie where Michael Jordan stars alongside Bugs Bunny? Could you recognize the 2002 film Like Mike, where a young orphan magically gets Michael Jordan skills when he puts on a pair of sneakers?
From drama to romance, these basketball films have all the genres covered. Can you recognize them all?
At the final buzzer, will you be left sinking the game-winning shot or will you be embarrassed from an air ball?
Let's find out!
