Format:  Skywalker: The David Thompson Story DVD 
 
 
No, it's not a documentary about the life of George Lucas, but rather a look at the legacy of basketball great David Thompson. Earning the nickname "Skywalker" due to his incredible ability to jump 44 inches, the four-time NBA All-Star revolutionized the sport through his dunking skills and his invention of the "alley oop." Along with a look at his remarkable career achievements, the film also includes insights from famous fans Michael Jordan, Julius Irving, Bill Walton, and many more. 97 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
