the national basketball association on film.....

Do You Have a Basketball Jones?


Greatest Moments in National Basketball Association History (2006) looks at How North America basketball evolved from an all-White game to a multi-racial game, and finally to a mostly Black game. The film also highlights the winners and losers of many Championship games and the many personalities who played pivotal roles in attaining those championships.

Who were the most valuable players? Who helped win the most exciting games? And what teams won the Championship games in the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s and beyond are highlighted in this historical film.

If you are a basketball fan you will LOVe the excitement, power and historical value of this thrilling film. Included: The stars of the Bulls; The Celtics; The 76ers; and The Lakers.

The only thing missing in this film was an analysis of just how much money is made in this game; who are the owners; what salaries the biggest players make; and how those salaries evolved in amount from the earliest games. Also:  Who decides who gets to earn ownership privileges?; and are Black wealthy individuals and wealthy Black players allowed an equal and fair opportunity for ownership?
