Best Pickup Game Drug Scene - 2001
Anyone who's stood back and watched what passes for basketball on the tennis court surface of Dolores Park's hoops cage has probably asked himself what those guys are smoking. What with the endlessly incoherent, befuddled pace, the bizarre improvisations, and the masses of players who sometimes wait more than an hour for a game on weekends, it's only natural to wonder. Well, for a hint, swing by the illuminated courts almost any night of the week. And there they are, sitting under the lights, against the fence, as lit up as the illuminated "Lights Out in 10 Minutes" warning sign across the court. The real fall-down-laughing amusement, however, starts when some straggler coaxes them out for another game.
