Basketball legend Michael Jordan stars in this quirky video about a young basketball player who was cut from his high school team. Jordan, playing himself, meets the young man on a playground and proceeds to try and boost the youngsters apparent lack of self esteem. By walking the young man through his own life, Jordan shows how he overcame being cut from his high school team to become a collegiate and NBA champion; showing that if he can do it, anyone can. The film may or may not encourage youngsters, but the footage of Jordan's career is almost worth sitting through his tepid acting performance. The images of Jordan twisting and turning in air to score an impossible basket will capture the attention of the viewer, not the script Jordan is reading from. The words of wisdom expounded by Jordan are honorable and well intended. The video also includes a music video with Jordan basketball clips and rappers Kid n' Play. ~ Ed Atkinson
