Raymond Lewis.
A critically acclaimed documentary that tells the incredible story of a basketball phenom from Watts, California who many believe was blackballed from the NBA in the'70s and his unlikely and heartbreaking journey that made him a hoops legend. From the playgrounds of Watts, CA in South Central Los Angeles to record-breaking performances in high school and college, Raymond Lewis had been deemed a 'sure bet' for NBA stardom by any who saw him play basketball. So, when Lewis was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the 1973 NBA draft as a college sophomore nobody was surprised. However, after an ugly contract dispute between Lewis and the 76ers and an epic on-the-court battle with the team's other first-round pick--Olympic star Doug Collins--Raymond's dream of playing professional basketball was derailed--and allegations of league blackballing began to circulate. For the next decade, Lewis would continue to dominate on the playground and gyms back home in Los Angeles while stubbornly chasing his NBA dream, leaving many to wonder "What ever happened to Raymond Lewis?"
