The cold weather of the last couple days makes it easy to forget that the Oakland weather was downright summery just a week or so ago. It might be February, but that didn’t stop people of all ages from putting on their favorite summer gear and going outside to play. During this warm spell, it seemed like every basketball court in the city was packed. These were the same courts that were practically empty just a few days before. The player in this drawing stood out for his locks, pulled into a clasp on the back of his head (which isn’t visible in this drawing), and for his height. He was one of the few people at this particular park who was actually tall enough to be in the NBA. Whoever had him on their team was probably going to win that day, at least if he was as good as he was tall.
