Solid documentary on everyone's basketball grandpa
10 February 2019 | by NolamoviedudeSee all my reviews

This Dean Smith documentary is a Showtime original and gets a lot of great basketball people from Dean's basketball life to chime in with people like: Michael Jordan, James Worthy, Roy Williams, Larry Brown, Coach K, Antwan Jameson and many others. The film goes back to his roots in Kansas and how he and his dad helped integrate his high school team, his college career at Kansas and being coached by Phog Allen, and his assistant days under Frank McGuire.

The film then goes into his first years losing at North Carolina, his recruiting of the 1st black player and finally his success in winning 2 National Championships and winning the most games of any college coach. It then goes into his post career political stances and finally his death. Sam Waterson narrates and in my opinion they should have gotten a sports commentator to bring more enthusiasm to the narration.
