On Hallowed Ground


To finish with the Rucker Park series here's a great TNT show from 2000. I remember how logn I had to wait in queues on mIRC to get this at the time there was so much hype around this. This was the real shit back then!

"The Entertainers Basketball Classic takes place each June through August at Holcombe Rucker Memorial Park in Harlem, drawing thousands of fans and inspiring generations of pro stars and local legends. ON HALLOWED GROUND follows last year's (1999) champions, the team sponsored by Bad Boy Records and an assortment of dazzling amateur players with monikers such as "The Future," "Half-Man Half-Amazing," "Up North" and "The Main Event." The special also features legends of the past who have graced Rucker Park, including Erving, an NBA Hall of Famer; Kirkland, the original master of the crossover dribble; Brand, the number-one NBA draft pick in 1999; Mark Jackson, an NBA All-Star; Carter, NBA Rookie of the Year; and Theresa Witherspoon, WNBA superstar."

The Filefront link died 15 hours after the video was uploaded so I reuploaded it on Megaupload, one of the few sites that don't deleted links and where you can put 500MB files.

Sites With Streetball Videos

If you didn't know yet you can watch videos on the SLAM Online website. The Highlight Reel videos shows some streetball games from NYC like that #14 with Nate Robinson for instance. The problem is you can only stream the videos and can't switch to full screen. Also half of the vids is usually some talking. These videos are made in association with Inside Streetball which also has some to stream on it's website. I couldn't display them with Firefox so make sure you run IE to watch them.

And1 Mixtapes Extras

Few years ago And1 released a Mixtape 1 to 4 collector DVD and these are the extras from it. Actually there were 33 short clips that I gathered to make a big one.
I have codec problems on my new computer and I think I overcompressed the file a little bit as it went from 700MB to 160MB but it's still watchable. Also I think you already saw a part of this as it takes many scenes from the first 4 mixtapes, but there are some new or rare stuff too of course like this clip where Main Event and Half Main shatter a backboard (I posted it on bangbang.tk at that time if some of you rempember ;)

EBC DVD 2


You knew it was coming right?
This time I didn't upload it on my server for fear it might be overloaded.
There are 10 parts in this DVD so 10 videos you can download separately.
Small ones are on ZShare others on Sendspace but I'm adding so mirrors too since Sendspace sucks sometimes for some of you (personnaly I don't have much problem with it though).

Great quality, over 1 GB of vids.

Finally Orange: The 2003 Final Four Champions

"Led by freshman sensation Carmelo Anthony, the hot-shooting Orangemen of Syracuse held off a late charge by Kansas to win the national title. Coach Jim Boeheim's third trip to the NCAA Championship game was a charm, as Anthony (the tournament's most outstanding player) and fellow freshman Gerry McNamara, playing with a poise well beyond his years, led the Orangemen past the Jayhawks 81-78."

This features also highlights from other Final Four teams: Marquette w/ D-Wade Texas w/ T.J Ford and Kansas w Kirk Hinrich, Nick Collison.

Yao & Nash Charity Game



Back from Paris with a new computer. The old one was getting too slow and video editing was a pain in the a**. I should have less problems now with Core2Quad, 2GB RAM, SATA stuff & Vista :)

So before I left yesterday, I've launched a few big uploads on several sites and as usual most of them failed. Except the one on Filefront, you guessed it: it's the Yao & Nash Charity Game (see last tuesday post for details).
The video is 700MB, MP4, 1 hour long, in english. I haven't watched it yet but even if it's a bit short for a game it looks like it's full. Oh yes, I compressed the file so hopefully it won't be detected by Filefront. You'll need either Winzip or Winrar (better) to unrar this game.
Other files I was uploading were On hollowed grounds & the eurobasket finals, I should try again today or on Sunday.

2002 EBC Rucker Park Game


Skiptomylou, Baron Davis and Eric Barkley are some of the players from this first game of the season. Skip put on a show at the beginning of the game untill the crowd went wild as Baron "Too Easy" Davis entered the park. Then the showdown could start. Other players in this game include Escalade, Special FX and Prime (Objective?).
This is a 23 mins NBATV recap, not the full game.

I know quality isn't great but keep in mind that rips in 2002 had to be compressed a lot as a 250 MB file was taking much longer to upload and download at that time ;)

All NBA Rookies Episodes



Here are the 6 episodes from this great show.

It's a Spike TV show in association with nba enterntainment about the 2004 rookies. It looks like the ESPN show "The Life" except it follows 6 players (the guys you see above: Howard, Okafor, Iguodala, Nelson, Harris & JR Smith) during a full season from draft day to the end of the Playoffs. There are also rare footages from famous rookies like Pippen getting "friendly" slapped by Oakley, O'Neal spinning on the hardwood, Melo struggling during practice and much more.

After several upload attempts on other servers I've put them on Megaupload which doesn't seem to delete the videos.

The Youngest Guns


Another rare video: Q-Rich & D-Miles playing and hanging out in this 2003 doc.
Synopsis: "Following Darius Miles of the Portland Trailblazers and Quentin Richardson of the LA Clippers, both of whom come from urban backgrounds in the ghettoes of St. Louis and Chicago, respectively, the film asks some tough questions about the merits of making it big as a teenager. The risks of bypassing education to take a chance on the court are examined, and audiences are presented with a glimpse of the life of up-and-coming ballers as they spend time with friends, strive to meet their athletic goals, and ultimately realize that the support of friends and family are the necessary counterbalance to the strain and allure of the NBA."

I had to convert the 700Mb-previously-banned-from-filefront-video to mp4 so I could upload it elsewhere (megaupload), I think the quality didn't suffer too much.

Harlem Hoops

Fat Joe pleads his case on the sidelines while his team, Terror Squad, plays on.

Digging in my CD collection I found this cool documentary on the Terror Squad team going for the 'chip at the Rucker tournament. It was in 2002 or 2003, I'm not sure.
That's a pretty rare video to find now. I've converted it to mp4 so the file went from 700MB to 260MB with a small quality loss, really easy to upload. I might try to do that again to save time unless you don't like mp4 files.

"MTV is taking it to the streets with the biggest street basketball tournament in the world. It all goes down at "The Rucker," the one-stop shop for street rock like you've never experienced. Here at "The Rucker," you'll find the hype, the ballers, the music and the moguls smack in the heart of Harlem.
Fat Joe's Terror Squad is the team to beat this season. The big man threw his weight around and recruited Stephon Marbury a.k.a. Starbury to round out a solid collection of Harlem's finest.
It'll be a battle zone on the court because Joe's opponents followed his lead and enlisted their own pro ballers to give their squads an extra edge, like Kobe Bryant, Baron Davis, and Eric Barkely, if we're dropping names..."

HARLEM HOOPS

I also got the 2 EBC DVDs, I'll post vids soon ;)

Russia European Champions


Russia defeated Spain 60-59 in the Finals of the Eurobasket after a very intense game. Russia was trailing during the whole game but staying within striking distance. In the end Pau Gasol missed key free throws, Russia made big steals and Spain was only leading by one. Russian point guard Holden nailed a big shot (luckily). With 2 seconds remaining Gasol then missed (unluckily) his last shot which gave Russia the title.
Kirilenko was named MVP with 17 points in this game.
