Street Ball All-Stars: NY vs. LA at Rucker Park

G Unit/Aftermath up-and-comer The Game was in town today with a team of all-star street ball players from LA, that he co-owns along with NBA stars Baron Davis and Gilbert Arenas. And because I'd been assigned to interview him for Mean Magazine, I was lucky enogh to ride up with The Game to the Entertainers Basketball Classic in Harlem's hallowed Rucker Park, where I watched his squad take on a NY All-Star team led by Rafer "Skip To My Lou" Alston.

Quick synopsis: The Game does, it turns out, have game. And Baron Davis is apparently something other than human. But the East took it 122-120, in one of the better street ball games I've seen (and I went to the Rucker every weekend for years back in the day).

I might post a little more about the game (i mean the game, not The Game) tomorrow, but for now here are some pics.. One of them has Michael Bivins in it, see if you can find him...

One scoop I can give you cuz it'll be old news by the time the magazine comes out: Game and Joe Budden officially squashed their beef on Tuesday. And it appears the moment was captured on film here.
