    Im a basketball player and its always sad to see the talent gone to waist like Earl Manigault. He fell down a thousand times but managed to survive and make good for his community and thats what its all about. Talent is nothing if your not a man. RIP the Goat.

    Earl "The Goat" Manigault was a playground basketball legend in Harlem, an idol to future NBA Hall of Famers. He could run like a gazelle and jump to heights no one thought possible (especially for a guy who was only 6' 2"). Manigault was destined for greatness on the courts of the NBA, but his personal demons conspired to sidetrack him. This docudrama finally tells the tale of one of basketball's greatest unsung heroes.

    Anyone that loves a comeback story, love the legends of NYC basketball (ala "The City Game" by Pete Axthelm) will love this movie. The story begins at Kareem Abdul Jabbar's retirement when a reporter asks him about the greatest players he had gone against and saw play during his life. Kareem, who was known as Lou Alcindor, on the city courts in NYC before his conversion to Muslim was presses to give one name. He said, "That would have to be The Goat". This is Earl "The Goat's" story. Don Cheadle, Eric Lasalle (who also directed it), James Earl Jones and others all give stellar performances. Kevin Eubanks,formerly of the Jay Leno Tonight show, does the score . One of the greatest stories ever. One that should be in everyone's collection. Tim Langanke Austin, Tx
