Synopsis by Betsy Boyd

Ball Above All is an action-packed basketball video produced by HoopsTV.com, a website dedicated to celebrating basketball from the playground to the NBA. The program includes brief segments on a wide range of subjects, including tattoos, Shaquille O'Neal's custom-made car, and white men who really can jump. Throughout, the video features no-name athletes who know how to move, proving that you don't have to be Michael Jordan to throw down a winning dunk or pull off a no-look pass. Sinbad provides comic commentary. Rap music adds zest, while sports-beverage product placements add a twinge of commercialism.
