Sports are indeed a large part of our lives. Our coffee-table conversations, foods, clothes, and even personalities revolve around a sport or an athlete that we solely admire. But, just as any other creation of humans, sports too were always bound to have controversies, and controversies always attract an audience. Netflix has been releasing content that is about or around sports for a long time, but it took a big leap with the release of a new original sports documentary titled Bad Sport.
Bad Sport is a documentary series of six distinct incidents from the sports industry. You get to see a bunch of athletes, police officials, and coaching staff come out; and talk about things that took the world by storm. Along with excellent viewers’ reception, the documentary has left fans yearning for more. But, we have got you covered, here are some great sports documentaries that you would love to stream if you liked Bad Sport on Netflix.

Even though the series has ended its run, the fans have another treat as Last Chance U: Basketball is here.
How often do we consider the fact that the minds that run a sport are just as important as the bodies? The Playbook Netflix is sort of an anthology.

Some popular names who appear on this series include Philadelphia 76er coach Doc Rivers, soccer manager José Mourinho, and USA soccer coach Jill Ellis.
