11 Best Basketball Documentaries on Netflix Streaming

11. Lenny Cooke

Site rank 1, IMDb rank 1; Overall Score 2
Directed by Ben Safdie and Joshua Safdie
Lenny Cooke should have been one of the greats. His potential is best illustrated by the fact that his generation of high school players included LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony and Cooke was considered better than both of them. But along the way something happened and Cooke never got to play in the NBA. Cooke’s story is a sobering tale of how one mistake can ruin not just one’s career, but life as well. The film was an official selection for the Tribeca Film Festival in 2013.
