The First Basket is the movie we've all been waiting for: a Jewish basketball documentary. No, really. Someone has finally brought this long-awaited (and quite specific) genre film to life. I kid only because I'm ignorant. When I think of things that go together, I just do not think "Jewish" and "basketball." I'm not sure why. The trailer says, "Before Michael Jordan," Kobe, Magic, Larry Byrd, there were a bunch of Jewish basketball players. Who knew? Well, these filmmakers did -- as do the guys who are interviewed for this doc. They're all old, former players, who grabbed onto basketball as their way to feel more American and less Jewish -- and to rebel against their families, who thought they were wasting their time and squandering their possibility. If the trailer is to be believed, these guys created the game as we know it today, and we wouldn't have the NBA in its current form without them. Oh, and apparently, I'm not the only one who didn't realize Jews and basketball go together like Jordan and Pippen, because even the trailer voiceover guy ends by saying "Really? Who knew?" Yeah, that's what I said.
