A woman sitting courtside got a surprise gift for her 100th birthday: the game ball from James Harden after a Rockets win.

After Harden dropped 38 points on the Bucks, he took the ball used in the game and delivered it to the woman. He then posed for photos with her, and gave her a memorable night.

In an interview with ESPN’s Doris Burke, Harden explained the special moment: Well today’s her 100th birthday, so it’s a blessing. You know she’s excited, she’s sitting on the court. She kept smiling over there. I had to go give her the game ball and tell her how blessed she is and I am for meeting her.

But this film is about Singh. His is the story of a boy from a small village who found basketball by chance, then grew into each opportunity presented to him, both physically and mentally. He is 7-2 now, and his height helped him get noticed. But producer Michael Ratner and director Roman Gackowski focused on more than measurements.

Satnam’s story is certainly his own, Ratner told Sporting News in an interview with him, Singh and Gackowski. Satnam, he gets it. And he got it as a 15-year-old. His family was, not dependent on him, but in his mind, he had to do it for his family, had to do it for his village, had to do it for his coaches in India and Ludhiana who taught him the sport, for all of India. He understands that there’s never been an India-born player in the NBA. He understands and carries that burden as his journey evolves and plays out.

The film does a good job exploring Singh’s roots. There are gripping scenes in his village, and the decision to pick up the story during Singh’s senior year at Florida’s IMG Academy, where Singh went as a 14-year-old as part of a program to develop India Basketball, allowed for some essential filming opportunities. We get to see Singh through the draft workout process, in the weight rooms, on the court and, most memorably, in a rare visit back to his village.
