Personally if I was an NBA player. I would do it maybe once just to be mythic. And I'd only do it at Rucker.

The summer should be for honing your craft behind closed doors, w/ little eyes viewing.

That way the next season you catch people by suprise with new elements to your game.

Word to Derrick Rose

Agreed

I would do it one time @ Rucker, and then never be seen again.

Summer time is for getting BETTER.

If Kevin Durant really does show off his handles at Rucker while he's there and then its on youtube, then I might regret it.

tuesday night stats :

Durant's shot was off throughout the night. He connected on only 9-of-29 shots and missed 10-of-12 3-point attempts, but he did make 21-of-23 free throws. He grabbed six rebounds and had seven assists with four turnovers.

He quickly ruled out fatigue as the reason for missing so many shots.

I made a pilgrimage from the United Kingdom to Rucker Park back in 2009. Kevin Durant's explosion is exactly what makes the place so legendary. Has anyone else visited Rucker Park? Here's a story about my time in Harlem: http://basketballjournalist.blogspot...cker-park.html

You know who used to kill in the Rucker league, Talfair. He was eye poppin good. More AND 1 ish tho than NBA like. My favorite was Shamgod. It was a lot of fun watching him. I didn't see Kobe but I did catch Baron Davis, Quinton Richardson and Marbury there.
