"Love&Basketball Lead"

Remember the first time you saw “Love & Basketball?” Remember how you rolled your eyes at the screen, talked back to the characters and “awwwed” at the end? If you can remember all of that, then you certainly recall telling your friends – or yourself – the things you’d never do or what you would’ve done in “that situation.”

Let’s see if you learned or peeped some of the lessons that I did….

    The movie is cool and all, but realisticly ain’t nobody looking for love. Especially guys in their eary 20s. My generation sucks lol

  • Misstae

    It’s just a damn movie. In this day and age, love does not exist.

    I love lovey dovey movies but this movie sucked major donkey a$%! First the love interest Omar Epps was mad selfish. He kicked her to the curb because she wouldn’t break curfew to deal with HIS problem. Can you say a$%hole? Second she really played herself when she pursued him with that gay a$% line, “I’ll play you for your heart.” Seriously? I hate this movie. She should have kept it movin’ and forgot all about this bug-eyed sucka.

    Love is very overrated.

    While I know the movie is a lie and won’t happen in real life, it’s still a classic! Besides…I still think it would be cute to kiss a dude for 5 seconds (while he counts) then break up 2 minutes later and push him dow a hill while Chaka Khan plays in the background….just a random fantasy of mine! :)

       I know that’s right I would love to have kissed Omar Epps

    sorry to be the party-pooper but this is one movie women (esp black women ) shouldn’t be taking notes from.  things rarely pan out with a happy ending like this one when a woman is the one chasing a man who doesn’t love her. she usually ends up with numerous  kids oow , her best years wasted, bitter , etc

    L-Boogie…you sound bitter. Love isn’t overated. What Love is is a bunch of things: joy, happiness, tears, laughter, pain, comfort, trust, security! How can Love be overated with all these things, that all experience each and everyday?

      Well, L…love isn’t over-rated. The “bullshit-tingling-in-your-groin-we-didnt-ask-pertinent-questions-about-life-sex-kids-values-temperament-but-decided-to-sleep-with-each-other-because-we-both-have-eyebrows-and-dont-want-to-be-alone-on-Valentines-Day-or-any-given-night-and-I-need-the-world-to-see-me-as-normal-even-though-I-put-so-much-focus-on-my-appearance-that-I-neglected-my-personal-growth-and-now-no-one-worth-my-time-will-have-a-conversation-with-me-because-I’m-vapid-empty-searching-needy-confused-tired-stretched-out-and-have-few-palatable-prospects”-type of TV-love is over-rated.
