What happened to the And1 tour? They still do it, or is it that ESPN isn't interested in following it? I love watching that sh*t. It was really the only reality show I like. Those cats ham it up a lot with the tricks, but the showmanship is still a skillful part of the game. You'd be a fool to think that a bunch of cats with sick handles could automatically compete against a top NBA team. It makes me laugh when people try to discredit what these guys do. It's like the cats who get so upset about wrestling being staged. Like it broke they hearts when they found out or something.
it's funny how cats complain about lack of Defense in the and1 competitions...when they know damn well they don't like seeing defense in college or pro ball. That's how street ball is. It's trash talk, less rules, and flasher for the sake of having fun. Call it the new age globetrotters, but I don't think anyone grew up clowning the fu*king globetrotters. We all wanted to ball like them cats, and do the tricks.
747, Spyda and Springs were my favs.
I miss City Slam. Skywalker wasn't human....
