Synopsis
In 2001, Lenny Cooke was considered the best high school basketball player in the country. He was ranked above future greats LeBron James, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. Ten years later, Lenny has never played a minute in the NBA. Here, we trace the unfulfilled destiny of a man for whom superstardom was only just out of reach.
