‘At All Costs’ Trailer: The Realities of AAU Basketball

Check out the trailer for ‘At All Costs‘, a documentary set in the world of AAU basketball that explores how the AAU system has professionalised youth “grassroots” basketball in America.

The documentary follows highly recruited ‘blue chip’ prospects, their families and their teams as they navigate the shaky terrain of the AAU circuit in pursuit of their dreams, examining the shifting nature of ‘amateurism’ in modern-day American sports, specifically exploring the cross-pollination between the NBA and AAU culture.

From the genesis of ‘super teams’ to the question of ‘what makes a pro’ (increasingly relevant in discussing the NCAA’s legitimacy), the film is said to examine where professional basketball truly begins in America. Looks like it’s gonna be great!
