In this documentary on the street basketball phenomenon, a crew of filmmakers and basketball fans recruited by Nike athletic goods toured major cities across the United States looking for the best neighborhood players to take part in a nationwide competition to find America's best street ball player. Nike Battlegrounds: Ball or Fall includes striking footage of local legends in action on the court as they fight for national recognition, while also offering an unusual perspective on the game, what it means to its players, and how basketball became such a vital part of America's urban community.
