Basketball is not just about the NCAA
Streetball:All the Ballers, Moves, Slams and Shine by Chris Palmer is a flashy spread on the urban streetball phenomenon, also featured on ESPN's program http://espn.go.com/eoe/streetball. Palmer has collaborated with And 1, a highly successful basketball apparel company, to produce this overview and to promote their Mix Tape Tours dvd's. You can read about the rise of streetball players like Rafer Alston to the NBA and other players who started out at the now famous New York's Rucker Park. In years past, many of these players succumbed to drugs but with the support of sports organizations, this is not a current trend. Many pictures of guys like Sik Wit It, Prime and Escalade fill these pages along with a fascinating history of the sport.
