Blacktop Basketball


You've heard the term "blacktop" before. It generally refers to any outdoor basketball court in an urban environment and it includes this one. Roosevelt Park located at 10th and P St. is my home court here in Sacramento. But this "blacktop" has an actual blacktop surface that absorbs and retains a lot of heat during the summer days. It will also destroy the palms of your hands if you put them down catch yourself or break a fall. My advice? Maintain your balance.

I shot these back in July of some guys that I regularly play with, but they probably got lost in the shuffle of summer weddings and honeymoon travels. I could go on and on about how much I looooooooove this game, but I'll keep it short and just post some pictures. Shout out to outdoor basketball...there's nothing like it.

Throughout the years,Basketball has advanced from an exemplary to a more modernized sport.For instance,things changed from perimeter two-point shooting to long separation 3-point shooting; from simple layups to all around moved alley hoops and artistic dunking.To wrap things up,attire: It began from over the knee shorts to longer beneath the knee shorts. Basketball keeps on driving its gathering of people off their seats.No big surprise it has effectively landed its name among the most famous sports ever.
