Watched "Semi-Pro" for the first time tonight.
Jackie Moon, the owner-coach-player of the American Basketball Association's Flint Michigan Tropics, rallies his teammates to make their NBA dreams come true.
This movie reminds me of the Isles so much its ridiculous. Struggling franchise; low attendance; owner/GM/player is one guy (Snow was player than GM); they have a player that stands out from the rest and finally gets recognition in the end (Tavares); they go crazy because they get 4th place; look at the style of the jersey!
This part sealed it for me:
Go Grabs Go!

Yeah when I saw it in the movies way back when it did the same thing for me. The dungeon of a locker room, the old arena, empty seats. And didn't they trade a washing machine for Woody Harrelson?
