Phoenix Suns G Chris Paul boards basketball documentary

Oct 24, 2022, 12:00 PM

Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul is an executive producer for Handle with Care: The Legend of the Notic Streetball Crew, a basketball documentary produced by RTG Features and Victory Creative Group.

The documentary highlights a Canadian streetball crew from the early 2000s. However, there are several obstacles the group faced despite their impact on basketball.

“Basketball is the backdrop of this documentary,” Paul said in an interview with Deadline. “The real story is how brotherhood can be created on the court and transform into a lifelong bond off the court.”

Arizona State alum and Canada native Luguentz Dort also joined as an executive producer, along with Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

None of The Notic members played in the NBA. However, they achieved global notoriety through their streetball moves. The documentary showcases their rise to fame, as well as struggles with adversity.

This film is already an award-winner. Last year, it won the Truth North Audience Award and the Best BC Film Award at the Vancouver Film Festival.

Handle with Care airs at the Urbanworld Film Festival this month. After that, the Windsor International Film Festival and Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in November.
