I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been more chatter about "'30 for 30". Simmons seems genuinely psyched about the whole thing and after watching ESPN's promo clip, I've got to say it looks pretty good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy4ki1CkTgk Reading the names of the directors I recognized just a few, but they're a pretty impressive bunch. Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter), Barry Levinson (obvs Diner), Ron Shelton (wrote Bull Durham and White Men Can't Jump), Steve James (Hoop Dreams), John Singleton (Boyz in the Hood). A lot of the stories seem fairly compelling too: Iverson's trial, the Steinbrenner family, Muhammed v. Holmes, Reggie v. NY. Of course, there's also the Len Bias story and the 2004 ALCS story. I know it's in vogue to shit on ESPN, and a lot of that criticism is warranted. I also know some like to target Simmons. But with their financial clout, if ESPN did give creative freedom to the directors, this could be a fascinating series. Thoughts? Hopes? Dreams?
