sportskool teams up with Waliyy "Main Event" Dixon and Public Enemy rapper Chuck D to boost On Demand television viewers onto the gritty ball courts of New York City for a serious lesson in playground basketball, otherwise known as "streetball." Learn how to break all the rules without destroying the integrity of the game with step-by-step instruction for all of Main Event's signature moves, including the windmill and the notorious 360 dunk. Streetball instruction launches on sportskool on August 3.
Shot on location at Behagen Park in Bronx, New York, "Main Event" gives in-depth instruction on how to execute astonishing plays, dunks, passes, defense maneuvers, and of course, how to make a name for yourself on the playground. New York City's Holocombe Rucker Park became the birthplace of streetball in 1946 when a NYC Parks employee hosted a basketball tournament to give local kids something to do. Rapidly increasing in popularity, these amateur games soon gained credible recognition when NBA stars flocked to the court to see if they had the skills necessary to make it on the streets.
Currently competing in the 2006 And 1 Mixtape Tour, Waliyy "Main Event" Dixon, has managed to become one of the most credited streetballers in the game. Dixon began playing ball when he was 9 years old. Now at 6 foot-4- inches, Dixon is truly a force to be reckoned with and you can integrate all of his training, skills and signature moves into a unique style that's all your own only on sportskool.
