On Hallowed Ground

"On Hallowed Ground" from TNT. 

The last line of the documentary asks us to consider the politics of basketball, representation and ideology:

 "For the players on the hallowed ground at Rucker Park, there is no life after basketball. Because life is basketball. The question is, is that the problem or the solution?" 

What do you make of this?

Other questions to consider:

What does it mean for the question of race and representation that the white coach is called, "The Teacher?"
