New Trailer for Tribeca Documentary 'Lenny Cooke'

Fresh from its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last night where the film received a standing ovation, documentary Lenny Cooke, on the former basketball phenom, has received a new trailer.

The film highlights the rise and fall of the high school athlete who was once thought to be the next Magic Johnson, only to lose it all before any of it became a reality.

In the early 2000s, Cooke was the top basketball prospect in the country. However, poor decisions and injuries sidelined him for good. 

No word yet on next screenings or a release.
