Basketball court named after slain rapper Nipsey Hussle

Asides 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, some few distance away from his clothing store (the Marathon Clothing).

The public basketball court which was officially unveiled on Sunday, bares the image of Nipsey across 78 feet of pavement. Artist Gustavo Zermeno was credited for the painting with backing by Venice Basketball League’s CEO, Nick Ansom.
