That Lloyd ‘Swee’ Pea’ Daniels became an NBA player was no surprise; at age 16 he was named ‘the next Magic Johnson.’ That his debut happened at age 25—in a body ravaged by bullets and years of crack-cocaine addiction—was a miracle. “The Legend of Swee’ Pea” documents present day Lloyd and tells the story of his past, observing how environment, relationships and personal choice affect the ultimate manifestation of a preternatural gift.
Director Benjamin May and Producer Annemarie Lawless scheduled to attend.
