This past Sunday Veniceball ushered in a new era of basketball in Hoopers Paradise with the unveiling of the Wave Court 2.0. A subtle yet beautiful new design to represent our growth, and the way we nurture the game we love and the sacred spaces on which we play it. With rain on the forecast, we decided on “The Rain Games” for our inaugural run on the new court, rain or shine—were gonna hoop,because the game never stops. But, in typical Hoopers Paradise fashion, we got lucky, and the rain games became the rainbow games with the sun shining bright as we hooped until it went down.
The day started off with a casting call hoop session for our friends at 2K. And kept going strong all day long. Highlights included an epic sitdown dunk by Bionic Brooks off the bounce from Buddha, White Iverson breaking ankles, and Mamadou standing tall above them all. As always, mouthpiece had everybody rollin’ with the best in-game commentary on the West Coast. Love to all for coming out, stay tuned for updates on when to join us next!
