The murder of a private investigator leads back to basketball and the cutthroat competition for court time.
Did You Know?
The basketball players in this episode attend a fictional "Moses Caro High School." The school name appears to be a tongue-in-cheek conflation of two very different New Yorkers: Robert Moses and Robert Caro. Moses (1888-1981) was a once-lauded "urban planning" bureaucrat today often remembered for destroying established, traditional neighborhoods to make room for expressways; while Caro (born 1935) wrote a massive, highly critical biography of the former, titled "The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York" (1974), which won the Pulitzer Prize.

These must be his former players - and their kids. It's beginning to look a little like "Goodbye, Mister Chips" in here.

[picks up a potted plant
At least Mister Chips had a wife... Cranberry seedling. With my dad, it was avocado pits in a glass of water... TV. He stands over the kitchen sink and he eats while he watches TV. I found the same arrangement when I cleaned out my dad's apartment.
