The likes of Eight Men Out and The Blind Side notwithstanding, basketball tops every sport on the silver screen. The back-and-forth scoring, the spectacular jumps and shots, the buzzer-beaters from halfcourt, the complex interplay of class and race: it's all made for the movies. Before the real basketball drama starts unfolding next week, can you identify these eight hoops films by their posters or DVD covers?

Answers are here. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.

5.Celtic Pride
6.Coach Carter
7.Above the Rim
8.Heaven Is a Playground

Y'all really should have put in a photo for Hoosiers, White Man Can't Jump, Semi-Pro, He Got Game, The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh, The Air Up There... Hey, maybe even a tricky one like Hoop Dreams, but I'm glad there wasn't one for Space Jam. It would have been too difficult to figure out.
