The Legend of Swee’ Pea

Support this documentary about the quixotic life of NYC playground legend and basketball savant Lloyd “Swee’ Pea” Daniels.

“Lloyd Daniels’s unlikely rise to the NBA is the stuff that myths are made of: the most sought-after college basketball recruit of his generation, he got busted buying cocaine in a police sting operation. Two years later was almost killed after getting shot three times in the chest while negotiating an $8 crack deal. Yet somehow managed to make it to the NBA without having played a single college game, with remnants of bullets still in his body, and with years of crack addiction behind him.”
