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.

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.
