And 1 Tour and the general commercialization of streetball killed Rucker. It didn't have to die, but the people involved for whatever reason decided tokeep it a local NYC thing and it got left behind in the national scene.

Yup.

Still packed to capacity every summer, stars still in attendance and on roster.

There is a lot more summer leagues throughout the city now that are stealing some of the spotlight but Rucker is still Rucker.

That nike pro league is getting more exposure imo...a slew of high school/d1 & d2 college players and ex players go hard to get spots in there. Most playfor rucker too but these semi pro indoor leagues have been going well the past few summers

just curious, how early do you have to go to the Rucker to get a run(s) in
(like call a down or something?) or is it certain days where its not as busy?
