Make way for ‘Wayman’

Documentary on late Oklahoma NBA star due around Thanksgiving.

Wayman Tisdale, the Tulsan who conquered the Olympics, the NBA and the jazz charts, is the subject of a new documentary, naturally named “The Wayman Tisdale Story.” After a battle with bone cancer, Tisdale died in 2009 at the age of 44.

While ESPN is slated to air the doc sometime this fall, a DVD street date of Nov. 22 has been announced. Packaged with the film will be a 13-track CD featuring music from Tisdale’s nine contemporary jazz albums. One song, “Slam Dunk,” is previously unreleased, while another, “Cryin’ for Me (Wayman’s Song),” is performed by fellow Oklahoman Toby Keith.

The documentary already has won awards at the Park City Film and Music Festival, the International Christian Film Festival, the Los Angeles Sports Film Festival and the Pan African Film Festival. —Rod Lott
