Chicago Bulls star center Joakim Noah will produce the documentary Lenny Cooke. The doc will track Cooke who was once thought to be the next Magic Johnson, until he fell to the trappings of instant fame.

Noah:

“Lenny has always been one of my biggest inspirations as a basketball player. His story always reminds me to keep my eyes on the prize and to keep distractions away.

“I hope Lenny will push his story out to the next generation of kids who aspire to one day play competitive basketball at any level. If his story can make an impact on just one or two kids who have the opportunity to see the film, I believe we’ll be making a difference.”
