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.

These limited edition versions of the Hyperize go on sale at Shiekh Shoes and other select retailers on July 16. A NIKEiD van, which allows consumers to customize both performance and sportswear basketball product, will also be on site.
