Basketball Court Named After Nipsey Hussle

In addition to naming the corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue after Ermias “ Nipsey Hussle ” Asghedom, the city of Los Angeles has also memoralized Nipsey with his own memorial basket ball court in the Crenshaw district, not far from his clothing store – The Marathon Clothing.

The public basketball court that, which was officially unveiled on Sunday with a ribbon cutting, bares Nipsey’s image across 78 feet of pavement. The mural was painted by artist Gustavo Zermeno; which was backed by Venice Basketball League’s CEO, Nick Ansom.

Ansom told the media that the court was done as a way to pay Nipsey back for all his work in the community.
