Manhattan limousine driver Eddie Franklin (Whoopi Goldberg) lives and breathes basketball. Her world revolves around Madison Square Garden, home of her beloved, albeit in last place, New York Knicks. After a one game stint as the team's honorary coach, Eddie is offered the real head coaching post as part of a publicity stunt engineered by the new Knicks owner, Wild Bill Burgess (Frank Langella). Between laughs, Eddie teaches the New York Knicks and their owner a lesson they will never forget, and she reminds us all that the game is, ultimately, just that -- a game. It's for the fans, and it's supposed to be fun.
