John Lennon, Miles Davis Play Basketball at 1970s Birthday Party (Video)

John Lennon may have made his mark in music more than 60 years ago, but his songs have stayed fresh for generations.

His basketball shot? Not so much.

Lennon apparently spent a little time shooting hoops in his day, as evidenced by a video that has surfaced of him playing backyard ball with Miles Davis at a birthday party. Judging by the hair and clothes, it’s 1970s Lennon and Davis. Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono, and Davis’ significant other are there to join in the fun.

Lennon and Davis are playing a game called 5-3-1, a type of old-school horse where players get different amounts of points depending on where they shoot the ball. (One version says it’s five points for a made foul shot, three for shooting from where the player gets the rebound, and one from shooting just anywhere.)

It’s not just their game that’s antiquated, though. Check out the vintage 1970s basketball form by the music legends below, and see what you think of how they redefine “classic” on the court.
