Best Free Sporting Event - 2005
After you've spent a year watching the Warriors play something only vaguely resembling basketball, San Francisco's long-running ProCity summer hoops league at Kezar Pavilion is more than a diversion; it's a reprieve. The summer pro-am (which starts June 15) draws basketball players of all stripes -- high-schoolers, college players, even pros when they happen to be in town. Take last year's rosters, for instance, a virtual who's who of Bay Area basketball, past and present: Drew Gooden, Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, Hook Mitchell, Keena Payton, Ron Selleaze, Jovan Harris. No other sporting event offers such a wide menu of local talent; in fact, you'd be hard pressed to find this much basketball talent anywhere, Warriors games included.
