The 2008 Beijing Olympics was Team USA Basketball’s opportunity to regain the throne when it came to the international hoops scene. The squad — which featured NBA superstars LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd and others — was fittingly called “The Redeem Team” and Netflix is releasing a documentary that’s centered around their historic quest for the gold.
Executive produced by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the film will feature interviews from players and coaches after Team USA surprisingly earned bronze medals in the ‘04 Athens Summer Olympics despite having bonafide players like Tim Duncan and Allen Iverson on the team. In addition, in-game footage, practices, interviews and more from The Redeem Team ballers will be shown. Around the 0:38 mark of the clip, we get a snippet of Coach K explaining how the team lured Kobe Bryant in and eventually played a pivotal role in the team’s success.
Watch the full trailer above and note that The Redeem Team is set to release on Netflix come October 7.
