Eye on Basketball Podcast: Summer Dreams with Jon Weinbach

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

I'm joined by Jon Weinbach on today's episode to talk about Summer Dreams, a documentary about six people involved with the 2013 NBA Summer League. Jon is a co-executive producer for Summer Dreams and talks about the process of making the documentary. It follows the Summer League stories from the NBA Draft to the end of the summer session for Michael Carter-Williams of the Philadelphia 76ers, Shane Larkin of the Dallas Mavericks, Romero Osby (second round pick of the Orlando Magic), Dwayne Davis (Golden State Warriors summer league invite), Joel Abelson (D-League coach), and Lauren Holtkamp (looking to become the third female full-time refereee in NBA history).

What were the different ways in which each person humanized the documentary? How touching was Davis' story? How did the injury to Larkin's ankle change the way he was covered and was it in a way beneficial to the final product? How was the access for getting into the world of referee prospects? Did Carter-Williams' mother steal the show? And how important did family and strong female figures end up being in this process?

We discuss everything about the documentary and then I answer some of your Twitter questions.

Summer Dreams airs on CBS on March 15 at 8pm.
