Lupe Fiasco & Amare Stoudemire executive producing AAU documentary

You may recall Lupe & Amare Stoudemire linking up for a project called Little Ballers not too long ago. Well, today, some new news for the positive will make the project even larger as both Lu & Amare will act as executive producers of the Little Ballers documentary highlighting the behind the scenes of AAU Basketball and the rise of a few hoop dreamers within NYC.

The 80-minute doc will also contain commentary from Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Steve Nash, Joakim Noah and more NBA players and journalists.

Little Ballers is set for a November 26th premiere on Nicktoons with this Kobe Bryant teaser also accompanying the news today. These kids gotta step up their free throw game to compete with the Mamba.

I wanted to executive produce Little Ballers because I once was a little baller. It made a major impact on my life, helped me to become a better man and a better leader. Youth sports are very important for children — there are so many lessons to learn that impacts their lives forever. Sports help build character, discipline and teamwork, which are all important aspects for the future.
