Sports film of the week: The Announcement

Every week we’ll pick a sports documentary or movie we think we’ll all enjoy as a family.

WELCOME, MOVIE FANS, to the TheScore’s first Sunday film club. Every week we’ll pick a sports documentary or movie we thing we’ll all enjoy as a family.

Director Nelson George takes a look at the Lakers star’s revelation from the perspective of team-mates, coach Pat Riley, opponents, the player’s family and Magic himself. Here’s the trailer:
