Introduction to streetball
When most people think of streetball, they think of the players in the park, dunking doing tricks and playing without a care in the world. While all of this is true and applies to the streetball there is much more to it. For one, many streetballers make money from playing even though they are not playing professionally. Today there are many leagues around the country where streetballers can make money, such as the AND1. Streetball leagues have cash prizes and besides that streetballers make money on betting on their own games. Some games that may be commonly gambled upon are "HORSE" and "Around the World" New York City streetball is a clear example of the American Dream in society. Athletes who may not have had the same opportunity as others are still able to compete and succeed in the playgrounds of New York City.
