Loved it

Believe more stories like this need to be told. Netflix is starting to look really smart in the decision to put out quality instead of quantity. This gives a cool insight of what it's like to be a pro in a capitalistic society. Mixed with social media when used in the smart way is leverage for the underdog. Andre Holland was brilliant as a humble & smart sports agent. Being a NBA fan it was a treat to see and bravo to everyone involved. Also Zazie Beetz was amazing, look forward to seeing her in more roles.
