ESPN Screening LeBron Documentary... Oh, Kobe's In It Too


1 comment


Whether or not you've actually watched, you're probably at least aware that there's a documentary on Kobe Bryant out there directed by Spike Lee. It was plastered all over ESPN and such (you can read our film critic's review of it here), although the best comment came from Bill Simmons, who said in a recent chat that, "Every time he talked to a teammate they always had a look on their face like, 'Wait, why is he talking to me? He never talks to me.'"

Anyway, courtesy of Awful Announcing, we now know that that a new doc starring Kobe and LeBron, Dream Season 23 & 24, will air on May 21.

ESPN will televise Dream Season 23 & 24 presented by NIKE, a one-hour special Thursday, May 21, at 7 p.m. The program, narrated by six-time Grammy Award-winning and Emmy Award-winning artist Justin Timberlake, will chronicle the past seasons of Cleveland’s LeBron James, the league’s MVP, and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. From Olympic gold in Beijing to the quest for each to lead his team to the top of the respective NBA conferences, the cameras will provide unique access into James’ and Bryant’s preparation and stellar performances on the court.
