“Most sports fans know the story of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. And most NBA fans know the story behind AIR – certainly Bulls and Michael Jordan fans of a certain age do. But I did NOT know the story about Nat u0026quot;Sweetwateru0026quot; Clifton, and neither did my 87-yr. Old dad who played against the Globetrotters in his younger years.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSweetsu0026#39; break into the NBA happened a mere 2-3 years after Jackie R.u0026#39;s into MLB. Jackieu0026#39;s style of play didnu0026#39;t change baseball; Sweetsu0026#39; style of play definitely changed NBA basketball!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot sure why there are no trailers or ads for this movie filling up our movie and TV screens, but it is an entertaining movie with a good cast, too.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e*Highly recommend*”
