Man down! This defender was crossed so bad by Aaron Holiday that he just put his head down on the ground and hoped the shot didn’t go in. Lucky for the defender’s team the shot didn’t drop but unlucky for him his entire body did, was put on a video by Grit Media and now the video is being shared on Ballislife.com.
Holiday knows a thing or too about crossovers and getting crossed. He’s the younger brother of 2013 NBA All-Star Jrue Holiday and 2015 NBA champion Justin Holiday and the son of two college basketball players. In the upcoming documentary “Heart of the City | LA” the UCLA bound Aaron and his family are one of the subjects.

VIA Grit Media: Los Angeles, CA will always be the land of glitz and glamour. But how does the next batch of hoop stars not get caught up in the HYPE? Devin Williams (Shift Team HQ) travels back to his hometown and revisits his basketball roots to find out.
“Heart of the City” is a documentary web series that tells the story of 6 North American cities through the lens of basketball. Each episode focuses on a different city and throws the viewer into the middle of the hoops scene. Every journey needs a guide and ours is Devin Williams of Shift Team HQ. Devin is a trainer, a former player, and a student of the game.
Throughout the series, Devin watches up-and-coming local players try to become the city’s best and spends time in the gym with top trainers and coaches.
But that’s not it… We also dive deeper into the day-to-day lives of the characters who define the game in their city. We see what their lives look like. Where they come from. Where they’re going. What drives them. It’s a ground-level, slice of life approach that, at the end of an episode, is both a pulse-taking of each city’s basketball culture, but also a portrait of that city itself.
