The world-famous HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS were originally formed from the Wendell Phillips High School. The team played in the Negro American Legion League as the "Giles Post," and in 1927 turned professional as the Savoy Big Five under manager Dick Hudson. Later that year, promoter Abe Saperstein (Hall of Fame, 1971) bought the team and re-named it the Harlem Globetrotters.Read More
Located on 155th street and 8th avenue in New York City is the legendary playground of Rucker Park. What's special about this court is the level of the game played. Rucker is a pure place of street basketball expression where you will see the wildest, latest, and most impressives moves ever. The park got it's name from a man who had a vision to use streetball as his tool to give the city's youth the opportunity to express themselves. His name, Holcombe Rucker, the man who changed the game forever. The park was opened on February 23rd 1956 which was first named as P.S. 156 Playground. It wasn't until 1974, 9 years after Mr.Rucker past away, a local law re-named it Holcombe Rucker.Read More
C.Y. Ellis: Who would you say have been some of your toughest opponents?
Mark Edwards: There's no streetball player that can say, in any of our games that we've done, that have played against Hot Sauce and scored twenty points on him. I've got all the videotapes. I've got five years' worth of footage, and we have not one game where any guard has gone up against him and showed him up. And you know what? I'm looking for the day that happens so that I can tease him, but I can't say nothing to him.
General/Summary: As a devoted NBA Live fan I feel the need to allow the truth to be told about this game. First of all this game is good. Not great, not bad and a whole hell of alot better than NBA 2K2. I've read so many negative reviews about NBA Live 2002 and I just don't see what everyone else does. I've played Live 2002 for countless hours and at times I'm still in awe about how smooth the gameplay is and how the players look so true to life. To me NBA 2K2 does not hold a candle to NBA Live 2002. I'd like you to hear why so read carefully and take heed because this review is on point.Read More
