With the NBA season kicking off, Dazed & Confused Magazine has released a documentary film by Jon E Price about the UK government’s neglect of basketball as a sport. Even though basketball is the second most popular team sport in the UK, neither the Olympic nor national team has received government funding since July 2014. Compared to its counterparts in other parts of Europe, the British (BBL) and English (EBL) basketball leagues remain severely underfunded with no foreseeable resolutions in the future. Price’s film is a sincere look into the lives of passionate young basketball players of the UK and their denial of opportunity because of the country’s funding criteria based almost entirely on medal prospects. You can watch the documentary above, and read the full article on DAZED.
