Great Movie! Captures a lot of quality basketball, and park legends. Need more movies like this, makes you want to go to park and get BUCKETS on anyone out there. Summer Basketball in NYC is nothing like it, and for those tourists coming to NYC to visit need to go to any popular park and witness for themselves. This movie gives you an idea of how passionate players are in NYC. Wish more basketball courts around the US would be packed like NYC courts. But nowadays kids want to be indoors or on video games. Interviews in this movie are great as well, people need to know who some legends are and how they were born. As well as current players, everyone can say they are nice in there own neighborhood park but until you travel to another park in another hood, you won't know how nice you are. This movie can help an upcoming player with where to go.
