Powerful examination of systemic racism in American pro sports
Timely, arresting docuseries about the intersection of mens' pro sports and the oppressive struggle for civil rights in America--regardless of your affinity for basketball (and I readily admit I'm respectfully uninterested in watching most sports), this gut-wrenching and fearless examination of a nation both enthralled by and disdainful of its African-American athletes movingly captures the glaring hypocrisy endemic to a large segment of white American fandom. Important, authentic portrait of a society punctuated by pernicious inequality yet rife with courageous, talented individuals willing to fight for opportunity, success, recognition, and social justice.

Hypocrisy
More about pro athletes who spit on the country and people that have afforded them more opportunity than any other country in the world. Typical hypocrisy. They remain silent on issues in communist China where countless thousands are starving and killed to “harvest” their body parts. Why are these “courageous” warriors voices silent then?

A terrible series about a wonderful sport.
Terrible. Political views from ballers that don't have a clue about politics and basketball through a lens from prejudicial people. The broken flag on the cover says it all... no respect. Don't waste your time.

Awesome Documentary Series
An excellent look at the intersection of the civil rights movement and professional basketball. Well written and edited with amazing archival footage as well as interviews with all the legendary players who lived through this tumultuous period. Mad respect to all the players who were forced to deal with such blatent racism...I had no idea about so much of what they had to go through. I learned a lot and am looking forward to the next episodes.

SIMPLY AWESOME - LEARNING SO MUCH!!!
From Oscar Robertson's push for free agency to Bill Russell's ridiculous 11 NBA championships to Michael Jordan's "Republicans buy sneakers too" to Allen Iverson's clemency - "Shut Up and Dribble" never fails to educate and enlighten!!!

A must see!!
I didn't know what to expect when I first tuned in....but whoa I learned a lot about the history of basketball and what African American players had to experience early on in the league. This series made me respect the NBA even more especially with everything our Nation is facing now. Watch it!!

Black live matters
racism cannot be tolerated, live is something precious, people complexion does not make us superior or inferior to anybody. Stunning series, thanks Showtime team, another hit.
