These aren't exactly Films but there are 2 pretty good anime series relating to Basketball that do have a pretty good storyline!
Slam Dunk is a classic from the 90's (Very Dragonball-esque animation style) which I haven't personally watched but is one of the classics.
Kuroko No Basket (Kuroko's Basketball) is a very recent series and is ongoing too with a few seasons already passed. It has one good storyline and I've watched it and is one of my favourite anime series, hence why I cosplay from it at Comic Cons!

As I have posted on here before, Space Jam is the reason my family started attending basketball. I know it is not as "cool" as some of the other films mentioned here, but my son loved the film and wanted to go and see a real basketball game.
I highly recommend a documentary about the final days of the ABA, a really good look at how teams would try to outdo each other in an attempt to be accepted into the NBA. It also delves in the 1970s marketing techniques and discovers the history of the Alley-oop play. It's called Semi-Pro.

Semi pro is a favourite of mine. Very nostalgic in relation to the ABA. Plus a lot of the stuff that happens in the film, I mean crazy stuff, actually happened in the ABA. e.g. players being traded for electrical appliances, someone getting shot at, fights during TV timeouts... Etc... A bit of fun!

chickenbroncitis: a good result to beat the sharks. Hopefully Lions getting rid of that coach will give us a good play off push and put us in the mix with the Eagles and Riders where we should be

Solly: "I thought it was a great day out, and it appeared like those around me (basketball fans new and old) did too. And for the haters, it’s back to proper basketball now… and everything that comes with it… smaller crowds, no television coverage etc. etc."
