Fast Break is a 1979 American comedy film. Fast Break stars Gabe Kaplan as David Greene, Harold Sylvester as D.C. and Bernard King as Hustler. It was directed by Jack Smight and produced by Stephen Friedman. The film was the big screen debut of Kaplan, although he had made earlier appearances on television sitcoms and movies, and was one of the first film appearances of Laurence Fishburne.
The film focuses on David Green, who is a huge basketball fanatic living in New York. During the film, he is offered a job coaching a small college team in Nevada and Greene accepts the position. When he arrives in Nevada he realizes that the talent level at the school is mediocre at best. He then starts to recruit various players from the street courts back in New York. Some of the players he convinces to come to the college include Swish who dresses as a fellow male but is actually a female, Preacher who is being hunted by some criminals, and D.C. who is a fugitive from the law among others. He combines the talent from New York with the talent from the college and eventually brings the team to contender status. Though the team starts to have some success with their new talent, they remain disrespected by much of the media. Greene then tries to set up a match between his new team and the number one team in the country coached by a man named Bo Winnegar.
