  • My first introduction to Hoop Dreams was watching the documentary on PBS I think it was a year or so after the movie came out in theaters, so maybe 1995 They also had a Where are they now QA segment afterwards which I still have a grainy copy of on VHS I m a basketball nut and so this was right up my alley And the fact that they followed these boys from grade school through HS and even beyond, was totally novel at the time I ate it all up Thoroughly enjoyed it 171 minutes be damn Hoop Dreams is [...]


  • Hoop Dreams ended up being a pretty good book Despite the slow start in the beginning, it caught up towards the middle of the book Hoop Dreams was not just about basketball, it was about balancing everything else is your life with your basketball life I would recommend this book to people who play high school basketball because I am pretty sure they can relate to one thing or another in this book Even though I was hoping for a little about basketball, I still enjoyed this book.


  • This book is a very good book I enjoyed it and I recomend it to any sports fan or anyone who enjoys books with happy endings I didn t like how this book has two stories within it so it goes back and forth alot My favorite scene is when the dad of the main character beats his drug adiction and comes back to win back his family.


  • Do not ever quit because if you keep on trying hard enough what is yours will come to you If u do quit think for the worst because there is nothing out there for you if you dont have any brains to back yourself up.








  • I thing this was conceived as a companion piece to the documentary It sort of read like an afterthought The film was a much better work of art.
