  • A somewhat poignant episode, showing the relationship between Reeves and his father, along with his realization that life goes on.

    It was special to see Reeves take the first step to mend fences with his father; a son watching this episode could learn a lot about honoring your parents just because they're your parents and not letting past hurts ruin the here-and-now. It was almost sad to see the two say goodbye to each other for what would turn out to be the final time at the airport. But, life goes on, and we are introduced to some new blood and what they bring to the table. Wardell Stone-loud, arrogant, in love with himself. Eddie Franklin-poor but a tough fighter. Paddy Falahey-the token Caucasian who is everything Goldstein wasn't. Teddy Rutherford-the "perfect" one who can dunk, shoot, and makes good grades. And, Jesse Mitchell-who we never really get to know.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Jake Reeves: (last words to his son) As your mother used to say, 'May the saddest days of your future be no worse than the happiest days of your past.' You're my boy!

    • Reeves: (at his first practice with his new team) I wanna see you guys working hard, playing together...where's Wardell?
      Wardell Stone: (walking in with a radio) Yo! Wardell is here, so let's boogie!

  • NOTES (1)

    • Thorpe is back, even though he was offered a basketball scholarship in "Artist" last season. And, Coolidge has somehow found another year of eligibility. In "Bonus Baby" in the first season, Walter Preston made reference to Coolidge having five years before turning pro, which would mean one year of high school and four years of college (unless he went hardship).
