The History And Culture Of New York City Basketball

New York City has been synonymous with the sport of basketball for decades.

Names like Lew Alcindor, Connie Hawkins, Kenny Anderson, Chris Mullin were birthed from the city blacktop and took their skills to the NBA hardwood. When you say things such as the Garden, the Rucker, West 4th, Soul in the Hole or the Goat, basketball fans immediately know what you’re talking about. It’s this history and cultural influence that’s been captured in “The Blackout Game- NYC Basketball, History & Culture,” a mini documentary which captures the sights, sounds, people, flavor and history of the connection between basketball and New York City.
