Inspired by true-life story of controversial high-school basketball coach Ken Carter, who received both high praise and staunch criticism when he made national news in 1999 for benching his entire undefeated basketball team for poor academic performance.
Usually sport is ametaphor for life - in this movie it seems that life is a metaphor for sport. Probably worth a look to see Jackson's performance. Compare to Kurt Russel's recemt sporting bio-pic "Miracle".
