The First Basket
Filmmaker David Vyorst examines the link between basketball and Jewish culture, starting in 1946 with the first basket ever made in a professional game by Ossie Schectman of the New York Knickerbockers. The film explains why this uniquely American sport became a melting pot for Jewish immigrants in the early 20th century, and how the development of pro basketball leagues was intertwined with the emerging Jewish community.
