Movie Info

David Thompson was an athlete who proved that the tallest man doesn't always have the advantage in professional basketball. At six foot three inches, Thompson's stature was hardly impressive by the standards of college ball or the NBA, but his 44-inch jump and amazing skills in the slam dunk made him a star while also introducing a new style of play to the game. Thompson once scored 73 points in a single game, made the All-Star team four times, and was cited as a major inspiration by Michael Jordan. Skywalker: The David Thompson is a documentary that looks back at the man's remarkable life and career, featuring rare footage of Thompson in his prime and interviews with fellow sports legends Bill Walton, Julius Erving (aka Dr. J), Dennis Johnson, and many more.
