Andre Holland plays sports agent Ray in the new Netflix film, "High Flying Bird," which is loosely based on the 2011 NBA lockout and directed by Steven Soderbergh. Andre speaks to the difficulty in making a basketball movie that doesn't really feature a lot of basketball playing, what he thinks about reviewers labeling the film "subversive," and why it was important to address racial injustice in sports. Andre also grew up a Magic Johnson and Los Angeles Lakers fan, enjoys watching the Golden State Warriors, and explains why he's more inspired by LeBron James' actions off the court than on. via Knit
