    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Jason Terry smiles as he is introduced to the media during a news conference in Brooklyn

    “Maybe the Rucker Park Championship. I don’t know, not the NBA championship. I don’t see how they could guarantee that, at all. I’m not buying it.” —Jason Terry of the Brooklyn Nets, talking to Dime Magazine about J.R. Smith‘s boast the New York Knicks will win the NBA championship this season. There’s been a fair…

    NBA players swing by Rucker Park — the legendary Harlem playground pickup game/summer league — during he offseason. Heck, during the lockout last summer it was like an NBA camp out there for a while. Nate Robinson was there Wednesday watching from the sidelines and was fortunate to escape gunfire that injured five people, according…

  3. Winderman: Players keep playing, which is a bad lockout sign

    Sep 5, 2011, 1:57 PM EST

    Goodman Drew Harden Durant

    We already have a complete 2011-12 schedule, because how, otherwise, could the NBA prove to the National Labor Relations Board that it is bargaining in good faith amid the lockout? To that end, we also have a complete preseason schedule, because part of the process means tormenting fans in Wichita, Sioux Falls, Fargo and Raleigh…

    This could be better than any of the summer pro-am league showdowns this summer (and beating Goodman vs. Drew and Goodman vs. Melo will be hard): How about Washington D.C.’s Goodman League vs. ECB Rucker Parck? The best of New York now in the mix. It is set for Oct. 1, according to the official…

    Who heckles Kevin Durant? The guy drops 66 points at Rucker Park draining threes over double teams (Scott Brooks does not want you to take that shot, KD) and the next day the crowd is all over him? Man, New York City can be tough. But Durant gets the last laugh. He’s tougher. Watch the…

    NBA basketball player Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City Thunder is greeted by fans as he arrives at a commercial event in Guangzhou

    Kevin Durant dropped in at the streetball Mecca that is Rucker Park Monday night. And it was a show. He dropped in 66 points. He had some highlights. The crowd loved him. He rained three pointers over double teams like they were layups. Sure, the game got a little sloppy — it’s streetball — but…

  7. Lakers draftee Ater Majok hanging out at Rucker Park

    We’ll be honest, we were not big fans of the Lakers taking Ater Majok late in the second round. Yes, he is long (7’7″ wingspan) and athletic, but he’s not done well in organized ball. He spent one season at UConn and is now playing professionally in Australia. But long and athletic can be fun…

  8. Lamar Odom, on bringing a little Rucker Park to the NBA

    Over at the Lakers blog Silver Screen & Roll, they dug up a video of a little street ball action with Lamar Odom. Watch and learn. We love to watch that kind of ball (there’s a reason everyone love And 1) but outside of a little move once in a while, that stuff never makes…

  9. Dwyane Wade shows no mercy, swats shots of little kids

    Dwyane Wade blocking childrens’ shots from John Karalis on Vimeo. Dwyane Wade is better than your average 10 year old on the court. You probably knew that, but if you had any questions about his ability to dominate children on a court, here is the video evidence from an exhibition event at Rucker Park in…

  10. The world comes to Rucker Park

    Aug 14, 2010, 9:50 PM EST

    Rucker Park in Harlem is a hoops Mecca, home of legendary players, the And1 mix tapes and some serious ball. As part of the Nike World Basketball Festival, Kobe Bryant was out there running a clinic, right after Michael Jordan and Dwyane Wade had dropped in for an event. Then the world came to Rucker…
