Death at the Wing examines the shocking number of promising basketball stars who lost their lives in the 80’s and early 90’s.

At the dawn of the 1980s, the world was moving faster, the media was growing bigger, and greed was finally good. For the NBA, it was a chance to finally step into the spotlight. But all that wealth and stardom came at a deep cost.

This is the story of how basketball reflected a moment when Reagan’s America doubled down on some of its core values: selfishness, violence, and racism -- and the players who paid the price.

Hosted by Adam McKay (The Big Short, Vice, Succession) and produced by HyperObject Industries and Three Uncanny Four

Solid sports documentary series that is not so sports minded. Yes, it is about the world of basketball from 40 years ago (or so) but goes deeper than just hoops. Even if you're not a big basketball person you can still enjoy this.
