Dir. Jill Campbell | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 86 min.
Ten years after retirement from a career as a professional athlete, Kenny Anderson finds that basketball is easy—it’s life that’s hard. Still reeling from his mother’s death and a subsequent DUI, the former high school basketball prodigy and NBA All-Star player loses a cherished coaching position, which sends him into a midlife crisis. Facing his personal demons head-on, the charismatic Anderson must confront haunting memories of alcoholism and abuse in order to find a way forward.
NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson will also participate in Battle in the Bluffs,
a free basketball camp and tournament at Niantic Park
