On Friday, Oct. 29, Apple TV+ will premiere Swagger, the Kevin Durant-produced series inspired by his life story. Swagger takes a look at the massive world of youth basketball, highlighting many of the pitfalls and problems many young ballers face. It’s a fully-formed world that understands the talented Jace (Isaiah Hill) has the world at his fingertips, and how the people in his corner, like his coach Ike (O’Shea Jackson Jr.) and friend Crystal (Quvenzhané Wallis), both help him navigate and support his choices.
Along the way, the perils of the industry abound. A kid this talented? The exclusive deals and rich investors are coming from all corners, looking to entice future stars before they’ve even graduated high school. The fire within many hoop dreams is real, though; anything can happen.
After diving into Swagger, we learned some dope lessons that can be used, whether you’re a baller or not. Today, here are four things we learned from Apple TV+’s Swagger. Be sure to stream it starting on Friday, Oct. 29.
