Summer heats up with the 2007 Ball4Real Streetball Tour
If the streetball players in the above photo look familiar to you, that’s because they were once part of the dazzling AND 1 Mix Tape Tour team.
They’re not associated with AND 1 anymore, however – they’re now part of Streetball Entertainment, producers of the Ball4Real Streetball Tour.
They promise that streetball has been “rejuvenated” and fans can get closer than ever to the action this time ’round with the launch of this year’s 30-city arena tour.
The tour kicks off on June 1, 2007 in Seattle, WA at the Key Arena and culminates in the ultimate showdown at the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York City on August 25, 2007.
The players will also give back in every city along the tour, stopping in at local YMCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs and community centers, engaging in various forms of community outreach.
Players include AO, Main Event, Spyda, 50, 1/2 Man 1/2 Amazing, Shane the Dribbling Machine, Circus, Special FX, I’ll Be Right Back, Killa Kirby, High Octane, Pharmacist, Coach Steve Burtt and Mr. 720 (formerly Air Up There), who performed the first-ever 720 degree dunk.
