In which Whoopi Goldberg inherits a Knicks team with Greg Ostertag and Dwayne Schintzius on it and leads it to the playoffs. It's not a documentary, and James Dolan still thinks Isiah Thomas would've done a better job.
The New Yorker did the world a favor by unlocking John McPhee's legendary profile of Bill Bradley, who was then at Princeton and seemingly bound for basketball immortality. There's a reason why this piece, more than most any other piece of basketball writing, has endured.
In which Joseph Bologna coaches the Phoenix Suns and doesn't ever quite get around to working out his extremely 1974, extremely serious race issues. It's a comedy!
This extremely 1991 Die Hard ripoff is only ambiently a football (or sports) movie, but it still feels like one in some important ways. Also Ken Wahl's hair is great.
Paul "Bear" Bryant is one of the most iconic figures in college football history. So yeah, Gary Busey would be the obvious choice to play him in a movie.
