Red Bull King of the Rock has become a staple of the summer basketball landscape, with one-on-one tournaments played out all over the world throughout the offseason. The survivors of each qualifier then head to the ultimate one-on-one tournament held under the lights in The Yard at Alcatraz. We’ve been there multiple times – it’s pretty sick.
And now that he has won back-to-back King of the Rock titles, Red Bull is scouring the world to find someone who can beat Baby Shaq in a one-on-one setting. A huge qualifier is coming this weekend to the great city of Dallas. Here’s what you need to know:
* The Red Bull King of the Rock Dallas Qualifier is Saturday, June 22nd at the Audi Garage at American Airlines Center (2500 Victory Avenue).

The tourney is capped at 64 players, first come first served. (We can’t tell you how many times over the years that players don’t get spots in the field because they’re late to the game – don’t let that be you.)
