Venice, California: "White Man Can't Jump" Courts
If you take one of the tour buses that hit the attractions of Southern California, you'll visit Venice Beach. And the guy on the intercom/driver will tell you that the above setting was where the basketball scenes from "White Men Can't Jump" were filmed. The space was a parking lot, but it was converted into courts and apparently have stayed that way.
We drove past pretty early on the tour, which perhaps explains why there is no game going on. Or, the players looked in the sky and figured out it might rain.
