EP. 142 — Love and Basketball

Amy & Paul alley-oop 2000’s Gina Prince-Bythewood athletic romance Love And Basketball! They discover the impact this film made on WNBA players like Candace Parker, learn why Sanaa Lathan had to prove she was up for the lead role, and ask if a childhood argument foreshadows the central couple’s turbulent relationship. Plus: Why did the love scene almost get cut by the MPAA?
