  • A gritty and sometimes grim portrait of Ed "Booger" Smith, star player of "Kenny's Kings," a Brooklyn-based amateur basketball team shepherded by curmudgeonly volunteer coach Kenny Jones. While the summer sun bakes the asphalt, the street life beckons Booger, who can't decide whether to pursue the long shot of professional stardom or take the likelier path of drug dealing and petty crime. More a prismatic character study than a profound statement about inner-city truths or the state of basketball.
