Indiana filmmaker Ted Green turned his attention to Slick Leonard for a documentary on the legendary figure for not only the Pacers but everyone in the Hoosier state who enjoys the game of basketball.

'Bobby "Slick" Leonard: Heart of a Hoosier' will premier tonight at the Fieldhouse on Tuesday and I implore all who are able to make it downtown to check it out. Tickets for the event are appropriately price at $5.29.

I am out of town and won't be able to join the party tonight, so if you are in attendance, please write up a fan post to share your experience and thoughts about the movie. Slick's basketball life story is one Hollywood would laugh at as a work of fiction, but his journey from humble beginnings in Terre Haute to championship heroics at IU, more championships and lots of wins with the Pacers, saving the Pacers with a telethon and then describing a couple of generations of Pacers' highlights with a signature style unmatched by anyone.

The details and stories behind the stories should be as humorous as they are impressive. Here's a trailer for the documentary.
