Doin’ it in The Park: Pick Up Basketball NYC, is a new film co-directed by basketball legends Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliaum.
The film explores the history, culture and social impact of the NYC streetball scene through the voices of playground legends, NBA athletes, and most importantly the common ballplayer who all day looks forward to calling “next” game at their local schoolyard.
I see so many parallels between Streetball and Bike Polo (3 on 3 format, courts, energy, passion, the rawness). Can’t wait to watch the full feature.
I know many bike polo players want to see the game progress from the streets to a more structured indoor playing environment, but part of me loves the rawness and creativity of playing on the urban “hardcourts”, just like Streetball and other “street” sports. For this reason, one of my bike polo ambitions is to play in NYC at The Pitt court.
