Love & Basketball is one of best Spike Lee's movies ever made. It's a story about basketball, which is rarer than football movies. It's not all about basketball, it's about winning, losing, pain and growing up. Very well written and portrayed. Highly recommended.
I'll beat you in your own sport, tomorrow. You know where to find me and I'll love you even when you lose honey. If that doesn't get you to come out I don't know what will. We're gonna have a fun relationship. Luuuuuuuv you
