The CBS comedy-drama ran for three seasons (1978-1981), winning an Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Drama. After a career-ending injury with the Chicago Bulls, Ken Reeves accepts an offer to coach an inner-city Los Angeles basketball team. Three seasons and an Emmy follow as Reeves confronts timeless issues in sports, coaching his players on and off the field. "I'll be behind you every step of the way," says Reeves to his team after winning their first game. "Yeah," another player chimes in, "like a white shadow."
