Basketball is an Activity in GTA San Andreas. It becomes available after completing Tagging Up Turf .

This is an optional endeavor, not required for 100% completion of the game.

Basketball - Activity Details:

After the mission "Tagging Up Turf", CJ can play basketball by himself at the several basketball courts in San Andreas, being able to score points by shooting the ball inside basketball hoops. The player can also do tricks with the ball, like spinning it on CJ's fingers. The farther the ball is thrown from, the more points the player receives.

Additionally, the player may activate a mini-challenge which requires them to score as many points as possible within a time limit. Scoring at least 30 points during this challenge is required for the "Hoopin' it Up" Achievement.

While basketball courts can be seen in most GTA games, only GTA San Andreas allows the player to actually play basketball.
