MARCH MADNESS: STREET NAMES RELATED TO BASKETBALL
Weird street names make for popular lists on this website (see
Atypical Avenues and
Rogue Roads). Since it is NCAA basketball
tournament season, here are a few basketball street names from around
the U.S. (some definitely weird!). Note that street names range
from very appropriate for the location, like Naismith Blvd. in
Lawrence, Kansas, where James Naismith, the inventor of basketball,
used to coach, to a bit...let's say...geographically-challenging
(Bobby Knight Road...in Georgia???).
