    @USA4LIFE: We have top teams from Chicago and Cali coming. It’s not far-fetched.

    Not sure what good will come out from hosting AAU events at the Rucker. It kind of doesn’t fit in with these kids trying to get a scholarship to college playing the game the correct way.

    Again, 155th makes another monumentary move (note: Pro Legends games and EBC)

    The legacy of Holcombe Rucker will forever live!!

    @ Chocolate: Rucker is the venue, the AAU concept will not change–i.e. the tournament will provide the athletes with exposure from college coaches and scouts alike. This will not be a rendition of the And 1 Mix Tape Tour, rather an opportunity for teams around the metropolitan area and country to play on a legendary patch of asphalt that once hosted Dr. J, Wilt, Connie, Kareem, Kobe, and dozens of other former and current NBA greats. It’s bringing AAU outdoors for 1 weekend a year, in front of a raucous crowd.
