"Pistol" Pete Maravich was one of the most creative and inspired players of his era, as well as one of the most widely under-appreciated. After his untimely death in 1988, filmmakers set forth in unearthing the legend of Maravich, who played for just 10 seasons in the league before injuries ultimately diminished his effectiveness. Focusing on his eighth grade basketball season, Pistol shows how Maravich earned his status as a basketball god from an early age, having had the fundamentals drilled into him by his militant father, Press, who also served as his biggest cheerleader.
