Referenced in many a rap song, Rucker Park carries a lot of meaning to the Harlem community. The site of the famous summer basketball tournament, the park has been a place for community solidarity for over 40 years. Inarguably the most famous spot for street ball, many NBA legends laced up and honed their skills here and it remains a court of dreams for many young, aspiring pro-ball players. Come by during a game and you're bound to run into a celebrity or two, there to see the talents of basketball's future stars who will inevitably make it to the major league like players of Rucker's past.
