TEAM OF BROKEN DREAMSIn advance of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, I hooked up with Steve James and Peter Gilbert, two of the filmmakers behind the award-winning documentary Hoop Dreams. With the collaboration of Sports Illustrated Television, we put together a nine-minute documentary that tells the story at the heart of chapter seven of Big Game, Small World: How members of the 1987 world junior champion Yugoslav team, players like Vlade Divac, Toni Kukoc, Dino Radja, and Sasha Djordjevic, forged friendships through basketball, only to have the war in the Balkans tear them apart.

The film won the International Olympic Committee’s 1996 Olympic Media Award and was nominated for an Emmy.
