'He Got Game' (1998)

Spike Lee's take on the basketball genre deliberately turned conventions on their head. For instance, instead of a pulsing and vibrant soundtrack, Lee chose to use classic American composer Aaron Copland's music. Several NBA players and coaches had cameos in this story of a former prisoner ( Denzel Washington) whose son is a hot college basketball prospect. The son was played by Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen.
