Even In Diminished Role, AND1's Streetball Culture Lives On


In order to be a proven streetball player, one had to earn a nickname based on his court prowess. Thus Rafer Alson became “Skip To My Lou” because of his uncanny way of dribbling that resembled skipping, or how Robert Martin became “50” due to his rumored 50-inch vertical leap. The list goes on: “Helicopter,” “The Air Up There,” “Shane The Dribbling Machine,” “Hot Sauce,” etc. (Thrill City)
