White Men Can't Jump

Billy Hoyle (Harrelson) is a former Tulane basketball player who makes his living by hustling streetballers who assume he cannot play well because he is white. Billy never degrades his race when joining on pickup games; he simply allows his opponents, most of whom are black, to falsely believe they have a natural advantage over him due to his race and clothing style. Such a player is Sidney Deane (Snipes), a talented but cocky player who is beaten twice by Billy; once in a half court team game and later in a one-on-one shootout for money.
