TIFF Today: September 7, 2008
In town to promote the More Than A Game â a film that tracks the trials, challenges, and successes of a high school basketball team from Akron, Ohio, and which also happens to be the team where LeBron James first received national attention before his NBA stint â James took some time out to host a slam dunk exhibition in Dundas Square before Youssou Ndour's performance.
While everyone loves a slam dunk expo, the movie itself was actually pretty good, garnering a standing ovation from the crowd and causing LeBron James himself to greet the audience in tears.
