Blue Chips is a 1994 sports film surrounding college basketball players. Pete Bell (Nolte) is the coach of the struggling Western University Dolphins and he must bring in some hot prospects, despite the fact that they are secretly being paid by the top colleges in the country. Bell feels that he has no choice but to fall into this practice. The team gives Neon Boudeaux (Shaquille O'Neal), Butch McRae (Anfernee Hardaway), and Ricky Roe (Matt Nover) various cars and other luxury items to ensure their playing for the Dolphins. Ed (Ed O'Neill), a sportswriter, begins to suspect that Bell is paying his players and tried to uncover the scandal. Bell's wife Jenny (Mary McDonnell) is tutoring Neon, but eventually finds out that Bell has been immorally recruiting and becomes very angry with him. The guilt piles up on Bell when he finds out that one of his former players had done point shaving in order to appease gamblers and then has to make a decision whether to tell the truth and lose his job or continue in his own self interest.moreless
