THE LEGEND OF SWEE’ PEA
DOC NYC 2015
Milwaukee, Flyway, Portland, deadCENTER, Maryland
The story of a talented basketball player’s unusual road to the NBA.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Lloyd Swee’ Pea Daniels was a legend on the highly competitive playground basketball courts of NYC, and one of the top college basketball recruits of the late 1980s. Before he was able to play a single game at UNLV, a drug bust ended his college career. But this was far from the end of his story. Benjamin May recounts the unexpected twists and turns in the life and career of the flawed but ever-charismatic sports prodigy in this engaging portrait.
