Hot Sauce Is Still Snatching Souls On The Basketball Court

Excluding 30 For 30’s overwhelming popularity, lost in current discussion is how spectacular ESPN’s original programming was in the early 2000s. Playmakers suffered a controversial execution, despite being one of the station’s most beloved series. The Life was simply an all-around dope look into the lives of athletes we watched daily.

The And 1 Mixtape Tour, however, was an after-school ritual.

I feel I speak for most hoops heads between the ages of 25-35 by saying The Worldwide Leader’s dedication to the tour was a religious experience. Names like Escalade (R.I.P.), AO, The Professor, Spyda, 50 and more became household names rivaling guys like Iverson, Garnett, Shaq, Kobe and T-Mac.

Arguably the most revered was Hot Sauce, whose crossovers, cockiness and image somehow made him a more hood version of Bubba Chuck. Turns out, too, buddy is still up to his usual tricks seen in this video. The poor defender never stood a chance. To make matters worse, too, he got Jason Terry’d. By a guy named “Baby LeBron,” at that, who did the LeBron celebration immediately afterwards.

Life comes at you fast.
