DALLAS -- Shane Larkin may not have been able to show that he's a prime-time player on the basketball court this year for the Dallas Mavericks. But he's about to get a prime-time spot on the silver screen.
CBS will show a documentary involving Larkin on Saturday night at 7 on Channell 11. The film crew followed Philadelphia 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams and Larkin around last summer in a show titled Summer Dreams.
"CBS pretty much followed me around from before the (NBA) draft, to the draft, what I did training-wise to get you to the draft,'' Larkin said. "And basically it films how summer league works for rookies and guys who are out of the league trying to get back into the league, and undrafted guys and a whole bunch of different aspects.''
Even when Larkin fractured his right ankle in July, the CBS film crew was there to chronicle the unfortunate event and it after effects.
"They were followng me, so it shows when I broke my ankle, it showed the ankle, it showed me in surgery,'' Larkin said. "It pretty much showed a timeline of how things operate from after college to the draft to summer league.''
