    Excellent Movie about Real Life

    I first read about Earl "the Goat" Manigault in the book called "The City Game" back in 1973 when I was a 17 year old basketball player trying to make a rep for myself on the playgrounds. Although at the same time I was able to watch Julius Erving slam dunk on live TV, the mere story of Earl Manigault narrated in a book inspired me more. The eye witness accounts of the people that actually witnessed the Goat double dunk in a single jump and soar high enough to pick a quarter off the top of a backboard were chilling. Earl's vertical leap and hang time in the air were truly amazing as he was a mere 6'1" tall, he was way ahead of his time. By the time the Goat was 17 he had totally mastered all aspects of the game of basketball - when he blocked a shot he would pin the ball high up on the backboard with his hand and totally humiliate the shooter - and he would regularly do that to pro-players like 7'1" Wilt Chamberlain. All those who witnessed him play said he was better than anyone to ever play pro ball and this included the likes of Connie Hawkins, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Julius Erving. Earl Manigault had a 52-inch vertical jump, in comparison Michael Jordan had only a 48-inch vertical jump in his prime despite being 5-inches taller than Manigault. Earl Manigault dunked OVER Wilt Chamberlain and Lew Alcindor (later named Kareem Abdul Jabbar) on the playgrounds of Harlem - he was totally awesome on the court. This movie is well-done and the basketball scenes are filmed well enough to make them believable. I would enthusiastically recommend this movie to anyone that enjoys true-life drama. The Goat's real story was a classic-tale of tragedy - Earl rose to the top on the Harlem playgrounds but fell victim to heroine before he was able to get his shot at pro-ball - but he later rose up again to claim his spot in the sun. He really was the most talented basketball who ever lived. For every Michael Jordan, there is an Earl Manigualt that never made it because life got in the way.
