The film tells the fictional story of Stanley Sugerman (Adam Sandler), a washed-up skills scout for the Philadelphia 76ers.
While on an undertaking in Spain, he spots Bo Cruz, a young construction employee hustling on a basketball court.
Cruz is definitely a basketball celebrity-in-the-making, which is good information for Sugerman, who has been suffering to find a player worthy enough to be taken into consideration for the NBA.
