    Obviously, the inclusion of some of these indicates just how few basketball movies have ever been made. Either that, or the columnist has no clue.


    10. "BASEketball" (1998)
    9. "Air Bud" (1997)
    8. "The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh" (1979)
    7. "Space Jam" (1996)
    6. "Love & Basketball" (2000)
    5. "Blue Chips" (1994)
    4. "Teen Wolf" (1985)
    3. "White Men Can't Jump" (1992)
    1B. "Hoop Dreams" (1994)
    1A. "Hoosiers" (1986)

    The Air Up There has to be better than BASEketball. It has more basketball in it.

    No love for "Celtic Pride"?

    One on One, anyone?

    And really, can Teen Wolf be called a basketball movie?

    "He got game" should be up there.
  6. "Coach Carter" is probably at No. 4 on my list.
  7. "Glory Road" is way better than about half this list as well.

    The fact "Love and Basketball" is No. 6 and not a top 3 choice is a joke.

    Fantastic movie.

    I agree with "White Men Can't Jump". Solid flick.

    I agree. The only reason I'd pick Hoosiers over it is because I always thought Barbara Hershey was extremely hot, not so much in that movie but for career hotness.
