Top Ten Greatest Basketball Movies

It's basketball; these are the best movies of all time.
The Top Ten
1 Coach Carter

A realistic movie that takes us beyond winning and losing: Shows us that winning a game doesnot guarantee "the ever-elusive victory". For victory you have to play ball...
A great movie indeed!

Best basketball movie I have ever seen! It has inspired me that anything is possible! I'll be sure to show this movie to my players one day..

I m a basketball player now I m a coach when I saw this movie almost I cried allot because he exactly like my coach samudra really nice movie...

This is the most inspirational movie I've ever watch! This is excellent movie and a life. Coach Carter, I salute you. THE BEST FILM

2 Space Jam

There is another Space Jam movie with Lebron James! I also think it's with the Looney Tunes but it might be with a different cartoon

Imagine if there was a sequel to this movie featuring Blake Griffin and a whole host of stars.

Hard to believe this came about all thanks to a Super Bowl commercial for Nike.

Inspired oddly enough by a series of Air Jordan commercials.

3 Glory Road

Awesome basketball movie. It has everything!

Amazing movie and based on true story.

Love this movie, get's me hype.

Better than coach carter

4 White Men Can't Jump

This movie is pure greatness and I just love the story line!

5 Hoosiers

HOOSIERS. Best basketball movie, EVER, based on a real life event where a David beats a Goliath, before high school divisions and class rankings. I listened to the whole game, live on the radio, and it was awesome. The whole state of Indiana was pulling for this team of underdogs. What a thrill it was when they won. No other movie, mostly fictional can ever come close to it. Space Jam, a cartoon? Give me a break.

Coach Carter and Space Jam? Is that a joke? Coach Carter is a good movie but it's not Hoosiers. Space Jam is good when your 10 years old. Hoosiers is the classic and is the best basketball/sports movie EVER!

I know everyone of you can score.. But defense is fundamental. Go team... I love you guys... If you go out and play and give 100% I don"t care what the score is at the end,.. In my bookk you are going to be winners.

BEST BBall movie ever...

The best basketball movie ever. And, for sure, in the top 5 of the best sports films of all time. No way any other basketball film can get close to this one.

6 Love and Basketball

How is this not number one. This movies a great movies about two peoples love for basketball but also their love for each other. It's a really great movie that everyone should see.

7 He Got Game

I love Denzel movies

8 Hoop Dreams

Documentary about 2 Chicago area high-school hoops players' lives over a 5-year period. Maybe the best documentary ever and one of the best underdog basketball stories ever. Movie is long and moves slow. More footage showing day-to-day life than basketball. Gets very exciting during senior year.

9 The 6th Man

Best basketball movie that you will ever watch in your life, I promise

10 Semi-Pro

Semi pro is HILARIOUS. Will Ferrel is a genius in the movie, and it should go down as not only one of the best sports movies of all time, but one of the funniest movies of all time.

The Contenders
11 Crossover

Street ball is more fun than the NBA even though is doesn't pay enough, we have to hand it to them these guys are good... This I know...

12 Thunderstruck

I love this movie

13 One on One

Robby Benson did a pretty good job as a 5'10" high school star trying to get used to big-time college ball. Was it as good as Coach Carter? No, but it didn't have much to work off of.

14 Celtic Pride
15 Blue Chips

It had penny hardaway! Duh

16 Like Mike

Why is this not higher up on the list? I grew up on this movie, I used to say "make me like mike" while tying my shoes before every game I played laugh out loud

17 The Winning Season

Awesome movie of female basketball team with the beautiful Emma Roberts.

18 Uncle Drew
19 Rebound

Very underrated greatest basketball movie of all time easily

20 More Than a Game

The story of Lebron James' high school career told by his teammates and himself. Very inspiring.
