I finally stumbled upon the full documentary just yesterday:

Very nice documentary about the infamous Rucker Park. You will see some streetball legends, as well as Stephon Marbury, Jamal Crawford, Shawn Marion, LeBron James, Tracy McGrady, Antoine Walker, Al Harrington, Eddy Curry, Jamaal Tinsley, Sebastian Telfair, Lamar Odom and others...

Enjoy!

Rare video to find with great quality. If you think about it, a rumored team with Shaq, prime Eddy Curry, Jamal Crawford, prime T-Mac, Lebron and Sebastian Telfair

vs.

Amare, Carmelo, a sane Marbury, Yao Ming, Al Harrington, Lamar Odom and Shawn Marion.

That would be, without a doubt, the biggest lop-sided game ever :laugh2: but i'd still pay to see it.

Sane Marbury KILLED it in those games. Same with Shawn Marion.

Its a shame Stat and Melo didn't get a chance to play (Or Lebron, T-Mac, Shaq, etc)

That last game would have been insane.

Yeah very much so.

I saw a short version of this documentary once, and I found it really interesting to see how many NBA players took part and how serious the whole thing really was. I also absolutely dig that they were bringing NBA players to the people and that the event is free. Besides that, we can only imagine what had happened if the blackout hadn't occured. I also wonder why a Finals rematch was never rescheduled.

And PS, my God how much can Fat Joe sweat for somebody that's not even playing? :D

any word on why Jay-z failed to even give notice that he & team wasn't turning up and letting down hundreds of fans and standing up Fat Joe & squad?? why it was never re-scheduled?

i don't really know the full story but it seemed like a bit of a b(i)tch move from Jay-z.

Did you not watch the whole thing? Jay had to leave town regardless if his team won or not, so when they had the blackout they couldn't reschedule because Jay had to take Beyonce on a trip the next day, which is why he wasn't in NYC.

They also couldn't reschedule because the latest game would've been in September, but NBA players aren't allowed to participate in competitive events after september due to a potential injury occuring a month before the season starts.

Also, the Bulls GM at the time John Paxson told J-Craw and Curry they couldn't participate in the event, those two were the core of Jay's team. So if they were to play the game the next day, it would've been a depleted Jay-Z team vs. Fat Joe's crew.
