Anthony knows what Banchero represents to an organization — and city — that hasn’t been nationally relevant to the league since Dwight Howard left town in 2012. “I’ve been in the gym with [Banchero] a little bit already, seeing him out here, just doing what he does,” Cole Anthony says, dressed in a T-shirt celebrating Shaquille O’Neal’s Magic tenure on it. “He’s going to help us a lot. And now I feel like we can really start building something.”
Certainly not camera shy anymore – as you probably have noticed from his media interviews – Anthony admits that it took a little while to get used to being filmed. Once he and his teammates got comfortable with that, though, it became a normal part of their routine during practices, games, and other team functions. “In all seriousness, it was a really fun experience,” he said. “As a kid, we got to go to a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and just like having that camera around at ten, eleven years old, you are going to notice that. It was definitely cool. Looking back at it now, it’s something I always look back at fondly.”
McCrary, a lawyer, author, filmmaker, and social justice warrior, was able to get several NBA stars and other celebrities involved in the project. Amar’e Stoudemire, then playing for the New York Knicks, and rapper Lupe Fiasco were executive producers. Steve Nash, Russell Westbrook, Joakim Noah, Tyson Chandler, and Carmelo Anthony were some of the others that appeared on screen. “Anything that keeps kids off the street is very important,” Noah, then a member of the Chicago Bulls, said in the film. Also featured was Walt Frazier, one of the greatest NBA players ever and an extremely popular figure in New York as the Knicks’ television color commentator.
