Want to Play in the Ultimate Pick-Up Game of the Summer?

Enter for a chance to suit up for a squad coached by Kevin Durant or James Harden.

On August 16 in New York City, Nike Basketball is hosting the ultimate pick-up game of the summer, a showdown at the Tournament of Champions with two teams coached by NBA stars Kevin Durant and James Harden. Want in? Just do any of the following: Tweet, Instagram, Vine, YouTube or even record a SoundCloud with the hashtag #SUMMERISSERIOUS and the folks at Nike will enter you into the draft. (Depending on the social media service you use, you can describe your game, take a photo of yourself playing, shoot some video of your sick moves or record audio of your trash-talk.) KD and Harden will be selecting players off the ‘Net for their respectives teams on August 13. Yep, summer just got serious.

    Classic, hypothetical dunker always gets me. As soon as a guy can scrape the hoop with his fingernail he’s asking for lobs in the layup lines.

    I just lost it at my desk at work when they did the slowmo of the kid rubbing that shot on the backboard. Lmao! I’m about to get fired, thanks.

  • spit hot fiyah

    no problem man, i’m here to help.

  • spit hot fiyah

    haha, yeah the best thing about this video is that if you have played ball for long enough you know guys that fit into each one the archetypes

  • Dfrance

    They’re only missing, “dude with all the fancy gear but can’t play” lol

  • spit hot fiyah

    haha that’s true. that is like 80% of guys at pick up games these days it feels like

  • LLC#12

    all the gear, no idea. i am yet to meet someone at the park who wears a shooting sleeve and can actually play. now when a guy turns up with them on, i assume they’re terrible until i see otherwise!

  • Dfrance

    Oh I HATE shooting sleeve in the park dude. I never understood the shooting sleeve fad. I know AI started wearing one when he had that grotesquely swollen elbow, but what is its purpose? Like why does Dwight Howard wear shooting sleeves?

  • Dfrance

    I can’t front, I like to coordinate a little bit, but I’m not a scrub I swear! lol

  • playa

    Man that’s some seriously cool shit,like uber cool haha :D
    The first 9 guys are every playday thing, the 11 th guy is a rarity,but i NEVER EVER spot the 10 th guy, maybe there’s no such guy in europe ha!

  • playa

    Amen to that,those are almost always TERRIBLE.

    It is supposed to be for people with tendinitis in their elbow (or Tennis Elbow as my grandmother argues is to be the medical term), just for compression to reduce swelling.

    lol rulebook jones and always fouled guy <– top two

  • Mike From Spain

    There are the guys who will get aggressive if you call traveling on them, it is mostly always the case with people who think they play better than anyone else. Also, there are the guys who seal you out with the elbow, and argue that’s just their torso… the guys who always push you with the arm but will complain bitterly if you do the same or call the foul (they are always smaller guys), also the guys who will argue for minutes on end on any detail. Or these who foul you , and when you make the basket will say it does not count because they fouled you before…
