The documentary film “Doin’ It in the Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC” explores the world of New York summer pick-up basketball, made up of more than 700 courts and an estimated 500,000 players. Co-directors Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau visited 180 of those courts spread throughout all five boroughs, with the filmmakers traveling to a majority of the locations via bicycle, their camera equipment stowed in backpacks. The film features interviews with streetball luminaries like Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Kenny Smith, “Pee Wee” Kirkland, Kenny Anderson, Corey “Homicide” Williams and others. As Kenny Anderson explains, the name of the game is “Win by all means necessary.” Check out the film’s Facebook page for the summer screening schedule, and attend a 20-minute cut with the New York Knicks on May 2nd and 3rd, from 9-10 amand again at 2-3pm each day at Grand Central Terminal.
