Slam Dunk in the Cargo Hold

Basketball? You can (sometimes) even play it on board a container ship at Hapag-Lloyd…

Some of the world’s best basketball players learned to dribble and shoot on the streets or in small “cages”, like the legendary West 4th Street Courts in New York’s Greenwich Village.

The team on board the “Bremen Express” have now shown that a container ship can also serve as a basketball arena. To help pass the time while waiting for a place in the dry dock in Qingdao, China, the crew took advantage of the empty cargo holds to have a tournament – and no doubt to perform plenty of slam dunks (when a player slams the ball down through the hoop from above).
