"People always ask me- what was it like coming out of high school & whatever happened to Ronnie Fields?"- Kevin Garnett
Nothing is guaranteed in life - just ask Ronnie Fields.
One day he was a McDonald's All-American poised to follow his friend and former high school teammate, Kevin Garnett, to the NBA, and within hours he was on his back in a hospital bed wondering if he would ever walk again.
For the last two years we have been working on "Bounce Back: The Ronnie Fields Story" and are looking to secure funding to complete this documentary that we plan to release in time for 2012-2013 basketball season. In his prime, Ronnie Fields was one of the top basketball players in the nation, when a near-fatal car accident shattered his neck along with his dreams. "Bounce Back" is the story of how one of the most legendary basketball players to ever play has continued to battle back to reach his personal pinnacle, while continuing to be an inspiration to as many people as he can reach. With funding we plan on completing post-production, licencing footage, and obtaining domestic and international distribution (TV, DVD, and theatrical), so that as many people as possible can experience the Ronnie Fields story.
- This documentary film features Kevin Garnett, Vince Carter, Mike Bibby, Scoop Jackson, and Ronnie Fileds himself, along with and countless others who help answer the burning question, "Whatever happened to Ronnie Fields?"
