"The Next Stars" doco is actually pretty disappointing
Firstly, put yourself in the shoes of someone who's unfamiliar with the program, the league, etc. Why are they called Next Stars? Dunno. There's no discussion at all about what the program does, or how it works, what its aims are, etc.
Secondly, it obviously has to deal with the fact that its two biggest stars left mid-season. It does this by acknowledging that they left mid-season and bringing the entire documentary to a screeching halt. Draft day, roll credits, end of doco.
Terry Armstrong gets a lengthy segment covering his pre-season injury, and his return to play his first game, and is then never mentioned again. What happened to him? People have been asking that question since the middle of last season, and no answers are coming it would seem.
We get a couple of brief glimpses of Hampton being unhappy with Shamir's coaching, with his minutes, with his role, etc but it never really goes into any detail.
We also never get any post-draft thoughts from the Hamptons. They seem to have just fucked off completely as soon as he left NZ. Zero analysis is done of why he dropped.
Some of the footage of RJ with his family is worthwhile, but it's really mostly just game highlights and some interviews, a 90-minute version of the halftime puff pieces they generally do, asking no hard-hitting questions of anyone and barely scratching the surface of what went on with any of the four players.
