INSIDE STREETBALL INVITATIONAL AT KINGDOME – 10 STACKS WEEKEND The Latest / Jun 3, 2011 / 8:37 pm
What else can be said of the late John “Franchise” Strickland that hasn’t already been said? His body of work speaks for itself. The way he ran back on defense looking at his right hand, then his left, then right, left, right, left after he made an innocent defender look dumbfounded under the hoop is the image that lasts in my mind. His craftiness on the block was unparalleled. I created an image with some pictures I have of Strick and thought I’d share it. It’s just one of the many ways his legacy has become immortalized.

If you didn't have your sets tuned to CBS Saturday afternoon, then you missed a heck of a performance by one of New York's (Harlem) own Jeremy Hazell, who is notoriously known all over the Apple as the Cabby or the Cab Driver.
He was originally named the "Haitian Cab Driver" by Kingdome announcer Taz at the Showboat Classic a few years back. I remember when I witnessed the Cabby make the game look too easy. It was like conjoined twins with a basketball at birth.
On Saturday, he showed the world he can ball for real as he scored 40 points and grabbed seven boards on national television. If Cabby continues to play the way he has been, I think he has a chance to go NBA lottery pick. What do you guys think?
Watch Hazell get real clutch at the end of the game in the clip above and don't forget to add Bounce Magazine on twitter by clicking right here.

Kadour Ziani was here this Tuesday testing out the rims at the world famous streetball court, KINGDOME. As I made my way through Martin Luther King projects, I could see from a distance that he started his test runs by jamming the ball between the backboard and rim. Read More »

New York City is the home of summer outdoor ball. There are several strong tournaments in New York – Gun Hill, Hoops in the Sun, Watson, Together We Chill, EBC, Kingdome, and others. Many long time tournament watchers would like to see all of them compete.
“Is this really the tournament of champions?” questioned NYC Pro/Am ref Eric Weaver. “This is only Nike sponsored tournaments. We’re missing EBC, Watson, there’s other major tournaments that have champions.” Read More »

A crowd of 10,386 was announced in attendance before the game started. At the 10 minute mark in the first half, the Kingdome reached full capacity or somewhere close to it with about 400-500 people. Faces like Duke Tango, Quentin “T2″ Hosley, Sean Bell All-Star’s Coach Rah, and Richie Parker were in attendance to witness the 2009 Championship between Dominican Power (blue jerseys) and Big Cuzin Entertainment (black jerseys).
One squad brought team-oriented style, while the other displayed individual talent. Kendall “World Premier” Provett, Kenny “Grown Man Stuff / Serious Satellite” Satterfield, Sean “Killa” Kilpatrick, Jazz “Total Package” Mansell, and Tyshawn “Bodywide” Valentine started the game.
Guess which team they were. Please don’t get it twisted though; the other team bragged names like John “The Franchise” Strickland, Raul Mercedes, Richard “Slasher” Rivas, Baby Shaq, and Frank “Frankie Chulo” Penn. Read More »
