Before LeBron James became one of the best basketball players in the world, he was just a kid from Akron competing at the high school level for St. Vincent-St. Mary. Shooting Stars is James’ origin story and how he came to prominence as a teenager. James (Mookie Cook) wasn’t the only talented player at St. Vincent-St. Mary.
James, his close-knit group of childhood friends – Dru Joyce III (Caleb McLaughlin), Willie McGee (Avery Wills), and Sian Cotton (Khalil Everage) – and Romeo Travis (Scoot Henderson) formed the starting five for their team that went on to become the number one team in the United States. The team must navigate the increased pressure faced with being the country’s best team and rise to the occasion to become champions.
