Pick-up basketball is the truest essence of the sport. There is no governing body, no schedules, no coaches or referees; only unwritten rules that change from park to park. People from all walks of life voluntarily step on the asphalt wholeheartedly for the love of the game. Over decades, this passion has manifested a rich culture with its own unique language, attitude, behavior, and style. DOIN' IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL, NYC lovingly uncovers this movement through the voices of playground legends, NBA athletes, and most importantly the common ballplayer who dreams all day about getting off work.
