At the start of White Men Can't Jump, Billy Hoyle looks around some empty outdoor basketball courts with a smile, lies down with a basketball under his head, and falls asleep. The scene dissolves to the same location, filled with players, and Billy Hoyle is sitting on the sidelines with other spectators, watching the rowdy games.
As far as I know, Billy sleeping was never mentioned again in the movie or resolved. He didn't wake up before the game, he didn't wake up at the end of the movie. I can't believe the movie was supposed to be a dream or a fantasy. Anyone else have an explanation?
