RE: Movie pitch for NBATV
As the head of Original Programming for the network, I know how busy you must be. Whether you’re furiously editing footage from The Association to make Deron Williams human or dealing with Ahmad Rashad, the Tracy Jordan of sports media personalities, I’m sure yours is a thankless and taxing job. I do not wish to waste any of your time, so I’ll jump right to the point.
I have an idea for NBATV’s first original movie. It’s a remake of Ocean’s Eleven starring current and former NBA players and set in the world of today’s NBA. Below is a short overview of the film as I see it as well as some casting recommendations.
Title: Fisher’s Eleven
Premise: Former NBA guard Derek Fisher comes out of retirement to lead a ragtag group of current and former players in the ultimate heist.
The Target: Billy Hunter
The Score: $20 million dollars that Hunter siphoned out of the NBAPA’s pension fund during his tenure as head of the Players’ Association.
Location: All-Star Weekend in Houston
