While our hoop-shooting skills might be saved mainly for trying to get empty cans into the kitchen bin, we blame this somewhat on our environment.
Sure there are basketball courts here in the UK but, as this set of photos shows, they don't hold a candle to what exists in the US, New York specifically. Talented French photographer Franck Bohbot moved to New York last year and in his series 'This Game We Play', he took it upon himself to capture the stunning variety of hoops that exist in the city.
We'd actually enjoy losing on one of these courts. Maybe.
