Shot in the desert outside Los Angeles, the short film, "Words Matter," features a strong poetic narrative that highlights Coach’s values of inclusion, optimism and courage. Lee and Jordan have handpicked distinctive words to be featured as the film’s narrative to champion a message they both believe in.
The film opens with Jordan riding along the dusty landscape to find four rocks scattered among the desert scrawled with negative words— “Hatred,” “Evil,” “Bigotry,” and “Lies.” He replaces the “bad rocks” with “good rocks” that feature positive words—“Courage,” “Truth,” “Love” and “Dream”—to write a new legacy.

It will showcase personal points of view from - artist Whisbe, Nets player, Spencer Dinwiddie and Satchel and Jackson Lee, among others - on why words matter. There will be published over the course of several days, stay tuned.
