Dyckman Summer League is just two days away and as New York City gears up for one of the most exciting streetball tournaments in the area, Source Sports is giving you a rundown of some of the fan excitement to expect next week.
One of the most exciting moments happened at Dyckman in 2011, when Kevin Durant went up against Houston Rocket SF Michael Beasley and fans were stoked, to say the least.
Check out the videos below to get an idea of how furious streetball fans are to catch the exciting action at Dyckman. Beasley even got into an altercation with a fan, who continued to scream “Beasley You Ain’t Shi*” as Durant looked on and laughed.
Durant continued enjoying the fan heckling Beasley throughout the night—but then he got dunked on by Beasley himself. Watch as the crowd goes wild after the huge slam.
During the Dyckman Celebrity Game in 2013, Meek Mill showed up for the unrivaled action and the crowd went wild as the DJ played his classic “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro).”
Take a look at some other highlights from the Dyckman tournament below.
NBA point guards Brandon Jennings and Kemba Walker both played on the same team in 2011 and went up against one another. Watch below as Jennings bounces a ball between a defender’s legs and watch as he catches an alley-oop from Walker at Gauchos Gym during Dyckman Summer League, with the crowd going wild once again.
Baron Davis was invited to Dyckman Summer League to share some encouraging words with fans as he expressed the importance of getting involved in the community. Check out the video below as celebrities, athletes, journalists and fans gather together to listen.
Another exciting moment for fans of Dyckman Summer League was when James Feldeine dropped 50 points against Walker and Jennings in 2011 at Gauchos Gym.
As one of its biggest stars, Jennings has also had his fair share of highlights at Dyckman Summer League, including the beating he put on ‘Hard 2 Guard.’ Watch as he hits the ball off the defender’s head, driving in for a lay-up and all around just giving guys filthy buckets with sick handles.
As you can see, Dyckman Summer League fans are arguably the most “lit” in streetball and we’re expecting the same turnout this year. Come enjoy the action, starting this Monday, June 13 (through August 25) at Monsignor Kett Playground in NYC.
