In New York City, pick-up basketball is not just a sport. It is a way of life. There are 700+ outdoor courts, and an estimated 500,000 players, the most loyal of which approach the game as a religion, and the playground as their church. Doin’ It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC lovingly uncovers this movement through the voices of playground legends (James “Fly” Williams, “Pee Wee” Kirkland, Corey “Homicide” Williams), NBA legends and current athletes (Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Brandon Jennings, Kenny Smith, Kenny Anderson), national sportswriters (Alex Wolff), and most importantly the common ballplayer who dreams all day about getting off work so that he or she can call “next” game at their local schoolyard.
