Lenny Cooke Trailer

What happens to a dream deferred?
Langston Hughes – Harlem
Lenny Cooke is the epitome of that question. He was the top prospect for the NBA. Ranked above Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, and Amar’e Stoudemire and he was only in high school. From the trailer, it’s quite apparent what happened to him. At the cusp of success, many people tend to lose focus. Especially when that success comes so easy. Natural talent easily transforms from a blessing into a curse if you lose focus. This movie documents what went wrong in his “coulda, shoulda, woulda” legacy.
I can’t help but feel sorry. Not just for the young man in this documentary but for many others that fell victim to the same plight. All I can say is that God does not work in the business of mistakes. I’m hoping that the team behind this young man keeps him on the straight and narrow.
