My team and I have been working on The Drew: No Excuse, Just Produce, for over two years now. This has been one of the most challenging yet amazing journeys, since we are driven to make a film that truly celebrates The Drew, LA Basketball and it's history. It is a culture of basketball and a history that has been long overlooked. This is not just a sports documentary– it’s a story about family, community, and the lessons we learn through basketball.
Over the past couple of years while I’ve been away from the NBA, I have been able to see The Drew for what it is, especially how it is so much more than just basketball. Yes, basketball is the foundation and will always be at its core, but I have learned to appreciate even more of what The Drew has to offer, and what that means to the community.
For me The Drew is a father, protector and an opportunity providing an example for all of us. When I was thirteen, Commissioner Dino Smiley gave me one of those opportunities on a Thursday night to play against grown men who not only sharpened my game, but also took me in. Dino Smiley showed us all what it really means to be a father, not just with his own kids, but also with all of us who came up through The Drew.
This is the true power of The Drew and what this documentary is all about; fatherhood, family, positivity and changing young lives.
