Basketball in New York is a saga set in schoolyards, street corners, gymnasiums, and packed arenas, where a shared sports culture cuts across race, ethnicity, class, and language. City/Game: Basketball in New York captures the excitement and evolution of this quintessentially urban game and the energy of the diverse New Yorkers who play it and love it. Relive historic highs and lows, and revisit legendary players like Knicks legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier, Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, WNBA trailblazer Nancy Lieberman, as well as current stars such as Queens-born Liberty star Tina Charles and the city’s latest headline player, Kevin Durant. From Rucker Park to Madison Square Garden, from jazz bands to sneaker stories, experience why basketball is truly the city game.
