Storyline

For a team and an entire community on the Navajo Nation Reservation, the sport of basketball is much more than just a game. It unites a town and is the main source of entertainment in a remote part of northeast Arizona. It acts as a medicine for an area that's plagued by high alcohol, drug and suicide rates. Basketball provides an outlet for teenagers who are battling hardships at home and it offers an opportunity for players to leave the "Rez" and help their families. In Chinle, Arizona, it's Basketball or Nothing.

A documentary not to be missed
12 August 2019 | by borowiczluckySee all my reviews

I am a basketball fanatic my entire life. I played at collegiate high school and can understand everything these kids are going through. I was and still am 5'8. I came from a divorced family. One with money one without. Basketball is way of life in more ways than one. The lessons you learn stay with you for life. Great doc! Only issue I have is the same I have seen stated already, why spend so much on arena when the money could've been used in the community!!! Millions for basketball instead of running water? That's really the big issue I have. Other than that check it out whether you like sports or not!!!
