He-Got-Game

The father, the son and the holy game.

In the spirit of basketball, we take it back to Spike Lee’s 1998 film He Got Game starring Denzel Washington.  Spike Lee has built a reputation based on his social commentary and natural chemistry with the characters he creates.

He Got Game follows a father who must convince his son to play for the Governor’s alma mater in order to reduce his jail time.  What works for this project is the rare ability in which an athlete, Ray Allen, can act with credibility.  Denzel and Allen received praise from critics for their performances. He Got Game features appearances from NBA players like Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.
