Ball Don't Lie is a 2008 film directed by Brin Hill. It is an adaptation of the novel of the same name, written by Matt de la Peña. It stars AND1 Mixtape team member Grayson Boucher, a.k.a. The Professor. The film premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.


Ball Don't Lie plays out over one day in the life of Sticky (Boucher), a skinny high school sophomore and basketball prodigy from Venice, California. Burdened with emotional scars from a traumatic childhood, a callous foster care system, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, Sticky manages to transcend his limitations whenever he has a ball in his hands.
