White Men Can’t Jump This Saturday

In honor of the iconic film White Men Can’t Jump, an homage to playground basketball that is a staple in every ballplayer’s movie collection, Nike Basketball is hosting a 2-on-2 basketball tournament this Saturday at the legendary playground courts of Venice Beach. The event will feature 64 teams of the best street ballers in Southern California competing in a win-or-go-home, single-elimination bracket organized through Ballers Network for trophies, gear and a $2000 cash prize.

There will be a vertical jump contest featuring the Hyperize, Nike’s lightest mid-sole basketball shoe ever, and in-between games, players will be able to hang out, eat and rest in the Ballers Network players lounge.

A NIKEiD van, which allows consumers to customize both performance and sportswear basketball product, will also be on site.
