Synopsis

JUMP SHOT uncovers the inspiring true story of Kenny Sailors, the developer of the modern day jump shot in basketball. Introducing his never before seen 'leaping one-hander' to the masses on a national level, Kenny quickly grew to be a fan favorite while leading his Wyoming Cowboys to the Collegiate National Championship in Madison Square Garden in 1943. But after playing on several losing teams in an unstable, emerging league now known as the NBA, Kenny disappeared into the Alaskan wilderness only to be forgotten by the sport he helped pioneer. Now, nearly sixty years later, the multitude of people he has touched along the way have forced Kenny’s humble reemergence.

Well done, Jump Shot team!!! Kenny Sailors is my hero. This one is tender, compelling, just right for both the sports fan and the one who isn't. Selfless service, innovation, and joy all come together beautifully here. If you are looking for a righteous cause, you find it here in this story. Our world needs more men like Kenny Sailors. His life values are terrific!
