The Hollywood Reporter is reporting the exciting news that Nickelodeon USA will premiere and show "Little Ballers", a brand-new sports documentary that centers on a group of 11-year-old basketball players in New York City's Amateur Athletic Union, an inner-city springboard for potential NBA talent, on Wednesday 18th February 2015, as part of Nicktoons USA's recently launched NickSports programming block!

The 81-minute doc, originally scheduled to debut on NickSports during November 2014, is set against the backdrop of New York City, shining a spotlight on the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) as a feeding ground to potential NBA stardom.

Smith and Chamique Holdsclaw, Little Ballers follows four 11-year-old boys and their legendary coach as they set out to win an AAU National Championship. For these boys, basketball is more than a game; it offers them hope.

Set against the backdrop of New York City, LITTLE BALLERS tells the story of 4 diverse eleven-year old boys and their legendary coach as they set out to win an AAU National Championship.

For these young men, basketball is more than a game. It is a deep passion that holds a special meaning for each of them: escaping poverty, getting an education, living the American dream and bonding with a father, but more than anything, basketball offers them hope.
