The rain didn’t stop Kevin Durant, David Lee, Jay Williams and others from donning the Hillsong NYC uniform for the EBC Rucker Park All-Star game, which was moved to Gauchos gym in the Bronx. The same night, Swizz Beatz and Fabolous were surprise guests at Rucker Park for the release of the Reebok Question Mid “#1 Draft Pick” today.
It wasn’t just the trickery of Williams (yes, this Jay Williams), or the offensive brilliance of Durant that had the crowd popping at Gauchos, it was also the appearance of Fabolous and Swizz Beatz for the Reebok Classic Breakout Camp Kids and the release of Reebok’s Question Mid #1 Draft Pick.
But first the All-Star game, which along with Durant, Lee and Williams, also featured Landry Fields, Scott Machado, Chris Smith and Kent Bazemore. Just watch all the highlights below because there are too many to list except to say that Bazemore was light’s out from long range with multiple lefty bombs from beyond the arc, and Durant was doing KD at Rucker Park things.
Fabolous was the celebrity coach of the Reebok Classic Breakout Camp All-Stars who took on Hillsong NY for the EBC High School Championship. Both Fabolous and Swizz Beatz were rocking the Reebok Question Mid #1 Draft Pick as they milled about the legendary court signing autographs and posing for pictures with the fans. This was all before the rain fell after the kids’ game. After the game, the Breakout Camp kids got to preview some tracks at Swizz’s studio, which we’re pretty jealous about.
In all, it was a pretty epic final summer league night at Rucker Park and Gauchos gym.
Very limited pairs of the Question Mid #1 Draft Pick will drop on Friday, August 23rd for $125 ($95 in GS) at key retailers including Foot Locker, Finish Line, Jimmy Jazz, Villa, DTLR, Champs, and Reebok.com.
