Oddly enough, Matthew Dellavedova has become a house hold name despite have a very difficult name to pronounce. Delly was forced to step in as the starting guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the NBA Finals after Kyrie Irving went down with a season ending knee injury. Delly gave the team a spark and a bit of a hard nose style they didn’t have before. Although his efforts fell short they didn’t go unnoticed, inspiring producers Jason Shuman and Robert Galinsky to start a fictional narrative based film with Delly’s story line as the focus entitled “Final Four.”
The film will reportedly tell the story of three young Australian basketball players who have traveled to the United States after high school to play college basketball.
“It won’t be Matthew’s life story or autobiography but will be inspired by his exploits in Melbourne and overseas, and we’re meeting with his management in the next couple of weeks,” said Galinsky.
This is just a little odd to me. The Cavs didn’t even win the Finals yet Delly inspired a film? After a few roster moves, Delly may have a difficult time even getting on he court next season but I’m not knocking it. If it’s an opportunity to make money, go for it.
