Basketball shorts with the Gonzales Park odor
Gonzales Park Community Center is located in the heart of Compton. There are playgrounds, a swimming pool and basketball courts. They have obviously been playing ball there earlier in the day. Gonzales Park is also mentioned in “Sing About Me, Im dying of Thirst” as a place not only where they could play basketball, but also a place where prostitutes are picked up in Compton. The fact that prostitutes convene there gives the odor of the basketball shorts a more vivid description than just simply being “sweaty”.
