header more than a game 2 The LeBron James Documentary   More Than a Game

ESPN has prepared a video feature about the inspiration behind the ‘More Than a Game’ documentary. The flick is from first-time director Kris Belman, who followed James and four of his childhood friends as they grew up playing basketball and chasing their dreams in Akron, Ohio. Along with his former teammates and co-stars Dru Joyce III, Willie McGee, and Romeo Travis, James was visibly emotional at the end of the packed screening, when the flick drew a five-minute standing ovation from the crowd. From there, the Cavaliers star traveled to Yonge Dundas Square, where cops shut down one of the busiest streets in Toronto for a slam dunk contest for local players. James and company judged the competition, as over 5,000 people cheered on the participants. During the event, James generously donated money to the local St. Albans Boys and Girls Club.
