of the best players old and new have their
lives on tape and I'm not talking about
The Real World, I'm talking about The
Foundation, a NBA DVD with on and off
the court with these NBA All-Stars and
231-minute two-disc set is not rated,
comes in stereo format also features the
2004 All-Star Games and Rookie versus
Sophomore Challenge games.
The stories of the athletes that stick
out in my mind are Yao Ming's journey
from China to stardom in the United States,
Allen Iverson coming up from the mean
streets of Newport News, VA to being a
high school, college and NBA superstar
and Ben Wallace's trip from non drafted
free agent from Virginia Union, a historically
black college, to being a two-time NBA
Defensive Player of The Year and NBA champion.
The film is cool because you see all the
different places the players have come
from to make it to the big stage, done
in a style that is entertaining and informative.
Besides all the players mentioned
you also hear from the coaches, broadcasters
and fellow players of these players who
give you insight details on the players
personalities and why they are great ballers
in the pros.
a big NBA fan but this DVD is entertaining
if only for the disc 2 games alone.
The All-Star game is great because you
see some of the greatest players playing
like this is an regular season game and
the Got Milk? Rookie Challenge was basically
a dunk contest as it was a blowout.
are no special features per se besides
the games but I would of liked to see
maybe some quick bios and maybe a stand
out highlight reel of each of these players.
give the DVD 4 globes.
