Rick Telander wrote a timeless book (“Heaven Is a Playground“) in the 1970s, and decades later Dave Severns’ Hoop of the Day, a distinctive pictorial tour guide, is a fun feature on Twitter. It showcases the endless places where basketball is played.

Just take the past few days, for instance, where Severns’ Twitter feed shows hoops from Hawaii and London, New York City and Belgrade, Italy and the Philippines.

Without showing highlight-reel plays, the Hoop of the Day feature is a cool, interesting celebration of the places where the game is played.
