The NBA, UK distributor Revolver Entertainment, and social networking site Bebo are all working to back FreeStyle, a UK-based film about the competitive world of urban freestyle basketball playing.
The NBA has set up a competition to find freestyle hoops players who could play the film's lead roles. The film's script was written by former UK basketball player and filmmaker Kolton Lee, who turned to sports journalism and movie making after a career ending injury to his knee. The plot centers on a female student who hooks up with a street kid who encourages her to enter a freestyle basketball competition.
