More than a basketball documentary

Jump Shot is a wonderful film that focuses on the life of Kenny Sailors, the man who created the jump shot. Yet, the film goes beyond that. IT tells the story of a man who gave his life to the sport he loved but ever lost sight of what really matters: God, family, and country. You can see the amount of care and thought that went into telling the life story of Kenny Sailors. The story is compelling, the visuals are interesting, and the interviews add such charm. This film goes beyond any 30 for 30 about basketball, it keeps the main focus on Kenny Sailors for the whole film and doesn't lost sight. I would highly recommend this for basketball and documentary fans alike.

An Inspiring Tale On and Off the Court

"Take away the business, the media, the hype around the game. If you want to see pure love, look at Kenny." Kevin Durant's view of the subject of "Jump Shot" captures well the spirit of the documentary and the man at its center - a humble, unlikely star who saw basketball more as a means to connect with and help others than a path to fame.

Using artful and original story-telling techniques, director Jacob Hamilton and his team craft a powerful retelling of the story of one of basketball's most influential players who, until now, has been too often forgotten. Sailors is an easily-likable subject and his inspiring story goes far beyond the court, leaving the viewer fulfilled in more than just learning who introduced the jump shot. This documentary is one to cheer for.

I watched this film for the basketball, got a lot more than that

Wow. I loved this documentary. From the animations, to the old videos of Mr. Sailors, and everything in between, the film was wonderfully crafted and orchestrated to tell a story about significantly more than sports. While I love basketball and am thankful to understand more about the origins of the game, I'm even more thankful to know that a man like Kenny Sailors was advocating for the people he encountered because of basketball. This is a beautiful story. Job well-done by Jacob Hamilton.
