Rebound is a 2005 comedy film about a man who wants to be rich and living the life of a star. Since this thought is planted in his head, he forgets about his passion in life. Coach Roy McCormick was once college basketball's top gamer because of his intelligence of the game. However, he has been letting his intentions be on the money he receives from his high - paying jobs, not on coaching the game and his players. Also, Roy has a bad temper and it has been getting the best out of him at every basketball game. It has gotten so bad that he explodes into anger each time he walks into a basketball court, and the fact that he accidentally killed the opposing team's mascot in a heated game does not help him in any way. Since Roy is now banned from college basketball and is down on his luck, he waits and waits for a suitable coaching job offer, and finally when he gets one, it is not what he expected at all. The coaching job is at the Mount Vernon Junior High School. It appears that the Smelters team basketball squad, is actually his old team that he played on when he was in middle school. Despite its low paying, Roy accepts the job, thinking that the experience will make him better and then restore him to go back into the high paying jobs in college basketball. However, it isn't as easy as he thinks, his team isn't good at basketball and he has to teach how to do everything properly such as passing, rebounding, dribbling, and scoring. While he is doing this process, he realizes what he has been missing; it isn't the money or having his name in lights. He realizes it's just his love of the game that he has lost and now found again.
