Summary 1970s, Flint, Michigan. Jackie Moon is a former pop sensation who somehow made enough money from a couple of hit records to buy Flint's semi-pro basketball team, the Tropics. The team consists of a bunch of disorganized losers with one genuine talent named Coffee Black. Despite knowing little about the game, Jackie is the Tropics' coach as well as a player. His bizarre marketing stunts to draw in an audience include wrestling a bear and attempting a motorcycle jump over a line of cheerleaders. When the league plans to merge with the NBA, in order to survive the Tropics must do the seemingly impossible--win.
