Any time a new basketball movie or documentary comes out that might be worth watching, I consider it good news. And this qualifies. Here’s the Philadelphia Daily News reporting:
Before he was the front-runner for Rookie of the Year, Michael Carter-Williams struggled through Summer League with the Sixers.
Now, thanks to a CBS documentary entitled Summer Dreams, we will have an opportunity to follow Carter-Williams’ journey first-hand.
CBS plans to air Summer Dreams, a two-hour long documentary about NBA rookies and fringe free agents competing for spots in Summer League, on March 15, just in time for March Madness.
“With unprecedented access, we’ll witness hopes dashed and dreams coming true right in front of our eyes,” executive producer Mike Tollin said in a statement about the film.
In addition to Carter-Williams the program features three other rookie prospects – Shane Larkin (of the Dallas Mavericks), Romero Osby, and Dwayne Davis, as well as NBA referee hopeful Lauren Holtkamp and D-League coach Joel Abelson.
