NYC POINT GODS spotlights the ascent of Rafer Alston, Kenny Anderson, Mark Jackson, Stephon Marbury, God Shammgod, Kenny Smith, Rod Strickland and Dwayne “Pearl” Washington in the midst of a cultural renaissance in New York City that gave us East Coast hip-hop and a style of play that has come to define an era of basketball and American culture. The documentary extends the successful collaboration between SHOWTIME and NBA superstar Kevin Durant and business partner Rich Kleiman’s Boardroom, a 35V company.
The NYC point guards brought theatrics, dizzying ball control, stylish misdirection, and a shake-and-bake game from packed streetball courts to the city’s hallowed high school gyms to the NBA, orchestrating successful offenses at every level. NYC POINT GODS explores how the city shaped these distinct players, and how these players then shaped and advanced the game on a global scale. The film features extensive interviews and rare footage as well as prominent New York voices such as Stephen A. Smith, Cam’ron, Fat Joe and iconic college coaches Lou Carnesecca, Jim Boeheim and Rick Pitino.
NYC POINT GODS is a collaboration with Durant and entrepreneur Kleiman’s Boardroom (BASKETBALL COUNTY: In The Water), is executive produced by Coodie and Chike (jeen-yuhs) and directed by Sam Eliad. NYC POINT GODS is the latest addition to SHOWTIME SPORTS® unparalleled lineup of premium basketball content. Additional titles include KOBE BRYANT’S MUSE, QUIET STORM: THE RON ARTEST STORY and SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE.
