- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A small team of athletic brand employees tries to sign an upcoming NBA star rookie to their fledgling division.
It's 1984 and Nike is lagging far behind competitors Adidas and Converse in terms of sports apparel and signing athletes to endorsement contracts. Accordingly, Nike CEO Phil Knight (Ben Affleck) has tapped talent scout Sonny Vaccaro (Matt Damon) to change that, but things haven't gone well so far, thus forcing budget cuts.
Despite that, Sonny has set his sights solely on UNC star Michael Jordan, and without permission from Nike's director of marketing, Rob Strasser (Jason Bateman), but with encouragement from Howard White (Chris Tucker), he flies to North Carolina in hopes of convincing the budding NBA rookie's parents, Deloris (Viola Davis) and James (Julius Tennon), to encourage their son to reconsider signing with Nike.
Jordan's agent, David Falk (Chris Messina), isn't happy with Sonny's actions, nor is Phil, but Sonny perseveres, certain that if they can sign Michael, they can use that to turn around Nike's sports apparel division.
