Editorial Reviews

This celebration of a unique, wildly populist basketball event in contemporary America is sporadically thrilling but always boisterous fun, more boastful hip-hop video than even-handed sports documentary. Why not: boasting is certainly in keeping with the spirit of the annual Entertainer's Basketball Classic at Harlem's Rucker Park, a summer tournament that pits neighborhood legends against professional players in some very showy, showdown streetball.

Some call it a "Second NBA," but others just think of EBC as a very cool thing, where local, non-pro heroes such as Bone Collector, Keithy Keith, Sticks, and Alimoe can play their game their way, on their turf, to a crowd of 1,500 and occasionally steal thunder from the likes of the Trailblazers' Derek Anderson, the Warriors' Rafer Alston, and even the Lakers' Kobe Bryant (whose long-awaited arrival in Harlem causes near-hysteria). Recommended as a touchstone of spectacle and deserved pride. --Tom Keogh

Format: DVD
With AND1 hysteria sweeping the nation, it's tough to play a game at the rec and not have a "Hot Sauce" wannabe want to pull a move on someone. Most of these guys find out it's not so easy to pull of the move with someone actually playing hard D on you.
Enter EBC 2, a collection of footage from the recent Entertainer's Basketball Classic, the tournament of tournaments for most ballers. The level of skill is remarkably higher than that displayed in the AND1 tapes, where they played locals with little or no motivation to stop their opponents. So when The Bone Collector or A Whole Lotta Game pulls a so-called "AND1" move--slicing through the lane with a windmill lefty layup or shaking a defenders outstretched hand before shooting--it's all the more spectacular. Not only is the skill level through the roof, with NBA players lke Stephon Marbury, Jermaine O'Neal, Shawn Marion, Baron Davis, Derek Anderson, Jason Richardson, Cedric Henderson, Kenny Satterfield and Kobe Bryant making appearances, winning the championship is actually a goal.
Notice the emphasis on tough threes, get-em-out blocks, and disgusting hangtime oops; these are skilled players pulling off hotdog moves either because they have to or because they've got the balls to. You aren't humiliating chumps, you're trying to dunk or dribble through Ron Artest, Jamaal Tinsley and a host of streetball legends.
The conversational cuts in between the highlights could be done away with; it seems like the tournament directors and regulars are forcing face time. The music is a definite plus, intercut perfectly with the crowd's oohs and aahs. The DVD also plays the championship game in near-entirety, a definite plus if you don't think you can make it to the Rucker to watch the EBC live in your lifetime.

I just looked at this new street ball DVD with my buds and we were all blown away. I've collected all the tapes out there, and some are really cool, but this Rucker Park one slams on all those others. Why? Because its the only one that has KOBE and other NBA starz like Iverson, Marbury, Marion going toe to toe with these sick street ballers like Bone Collector, Tank, Whole Lotta Game, and some others whose names I can't remember. These guys do some insane stuff in this Rucker Park tornament up in Harlem USA. Plus, it came with a bangin' free CD with Fat Joe, Moe Mansun, Mobb Deep, which I didn't even no I was getting till I opened the box. Nobody be sorry they pick this one up.

This DVD ROCKS! Kobe slammin' with the best street ballers in the nation! Way too cool. This is where the action is for anyone that ever played street basketball or thought they were any good at it. Rucker Park is the meca for street b-ball and this video tells you why. Seeing NBA stars play with the greatest street players on the same court is pure magic. Great bonus CD with tracks from Fat Joe and Mobb Deep. It doesn't get any better than this!

Kobe, Steph Marbury, Bone Collector, Escalade, Ron Artest and Shawn Marion!!!!!!! Don't forget Fat Joe!!!! Something real from the streets. These cats have moves!!!! Both streetball and NBA players. This DVD was in FootLocker earlier. You can tell by looking at it that these Ballaz ain't making this up!!! Bone Collector and Jamal Tinsley go head-to-head and no one is letting the other one Punk him. I have seen a lot of other "StreetBall" tapes and you can tell cats are acting (And1 is known for faking it, how are you gonna let someone on a cellphone score on you?) This DVD had a lot of NBA players who represent!!!!!! Kobe Bryant came down and did the damn thing!!!!! He was ballin' like he grew up in Rucker Park. Cop this DVD!!! One.
