30 for 30 Shorts: ‘Posterized’

Our latest film, from award-winning documentarian Andrew Jenks, tells the story of how Shawn Bradley went from a bust on the basketball court to a superstar off of it

Welcome back to our 30 for 30 documentary short series.

Shawn Bradley came into the NBA in 1993 as a can’t-miss prospect. The 7-foot-6 center was destined for a career of highlights that would culminate in a spot in the Hall of Fame. It didn’t happen. Not even close. Well, the highlights happened; they just weren’t his. Bradley spent the majority of his career on the wrong end of a lot of epic dunks that ended up as posters. However, once his disappointing NBA career ended, Bradley went on a new quest — to show how a life of success has little to do with what happens on a basketball court.
