HOOPS AND HOPES: THE JOURNEY OF A RELENTLESS DREAMER
HOOPS AND HOPES: THE JOURNEY OF A RELENTLESS DREAMER NBA dream documentary This is the story about David McDaniel and his dream of making it to the NBA, a story of resilience. Daniel had big goals, he wanted to be a professional basketball player like so many of his peers. That's all he worked for, that was all he cared for. At the moment that was the only option in his mind for the future. He trained every day, he had the family support, all the variables were in his favor, but despite this, he only made it to third division. David is now a youth basketball coach, TED talk speaker, studies sports psychology, UBER driver, and sports coach volunteer for underprivileged youth on his free time. But when did his dream change? Discover a story about how sometimes dreams don’t happen the way we envisioned them but with the right mind set, passion, attitude and discipline those dreams can evolve. A story about facing obstacles and adapting to never give up. We want you to feel inspired by your neighbors’ story to change your own inner world. His current long-time goal is to open MYND-GAME, a facility where kids can train hard and have the resources to practice basketball. Just because he's not in the NBA doesn't mean he's not a true hooper.
