The White Shadow, CBS, streaming on Hulu
If you really want to go old school, check out The White Shadow, which ran on CBS from 1978 until 1981. The series shows a Chicago Bulls player’s career cut short due to an injury, and he finds himself coaching a high school basketball team in Los Angeles.
Recruited by his college buddy who serves as Carver High’s principal, NBA star Ken Reeves heads west to inspire youth in South Central L.A. after leaving the league. Naturally, he finds challenges with his players and with other school officials. The NBA certainly sounds cushy compared to public education!
