Since 2011, 30 for 30 has produced more than two dozen sports documentaries. Many people regard these programs as some of the best sports documentaries of all time, so choosing the best is challenging. Here are some of the most popular 30 for 30 documentaries:
– The House of Steinbrenner. Directed by Oscar-winning documentarian Barbara Kopple, this program details the life of George Steinbrenner, the owner of the New York Yankees. Steinbrenner turned the baseball team into a multibillion-dollar franchise and was responsible for tearing down and rebuilding Yankee Stadium.
– The Two Escobars. This documentary combines drugs, soccer, politics, and organized crime into a unique tale of Andres Escobar and Pablo Escobar. Though not related to the notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, Andres Escobar captained the Colombia soccer team. Directed by Michael and Jeff Zimbalist, the program tells how the two Escobars’ individual journeys resulted in the early deaths of both men.
– Once Brothers. This program focuses on Vlade Divac and Drazen Perovic, two friends and basketball players. Initially responsible for the success of the Yugoslavia national basketball team, the two players became well-known in the NBA. However, the fall of the Soviet Union split the friends and resulted in a bitter rivalry that continued until Petrovic’s passing in 1993.
