• Arthur Agee, the basketball hopeful whose rise to NBA prominence was chronicled in the thrilling 1994 documentary Hoop Dreams, is beginning a “Hoop Dreams tour” across the United States. Along with the basketball marketing company Hoop Connection, the thirty-seven-year-old Agee will visit cities from Sacramento to Orlando to find young people eighteen or older who aspire to play basketball and help them realize their own dreams. In a USA Today story, Agee is quoted as saying “This platform will speak for those people. It’ll give them a voice.” The Hoop Dreams tour will be filmed, and the organizers hope it will make its way onto television in one form or another.
