Product Overview

"What is it like to be a high school senior on the verge of going pro? Experience a riveting documentary that chronicles the riches-or-ruin gambles of one of basketball's fastest rising stars. Since the age of nine, Sebastian Telfair has been a legend on the streets of New York. Under the watchful eye of his older brother, a former collegiate star whose failed bid to reach the NBA left their mother heartbroken and the family mired in poverty, Sebastian refines his game, hones his image, and risks everything in the hopes of providing a better life for his family and realizing his dream of playing professional ball. ESPN's critically acclaimed documentary captures all the action, emotion, and excitement of an amazing year in he life of Coney Island's hoop prodigy. You won't want to miss a minute of Sebastian Telfair's astonishing jump from local neighborhood phenom to first-round draft pick."

Review Having had years to fully accept his talents and assume responsibility for parlaying his gifts into a better future for his family, Telfair appears serenely conscious of all the forces at play. Extremely media savvy (his cousin is Knicks star Stephon Marbury), Telfair seems capable of taking the hoopla in stride. Given his subject's supreme self-confidence, Hock's up-close-and-personal approach is relentlessly forward-driven and leaves no room for questioning anything beyond the unfair arbitrariness of a fickle system that rewards one brother with millions and another with exile to Greece.
