has been featured in the world famous film “White Man Can’t Jump”. For the past 45 years Ron
rode his bike to the Venice Beach Basketball Courts every single day. At 82 years, no longer able
to use his legs, he is gracing the courts for possibly his last time. Be there to witness this
memorable & historical event this Sunday.

phenom Jahmani “Mani Love” Swanson will take it to the top, running alongside slam dunk
dominator Michael Blue makes them the crowds favorite as they defend their title.
