β€œAll of us at SLAM are excited to bring the SLAM Summer Classic to Dyckman Park, the mecca of NYC streetball,” said Dennis Page, CEO of SLAM Media Inc. β€œWe’ve always prided ourselves on knowing who the top high school players were before anyone else did, from Stephon Marbury and Kevin Garnett in the mid-’90s to LeBron in the early ’00s to guys like James Wiseman today. There’s nothing like playing in the park in the summer and August 18th is going to be a night to remember.”
