PROMO: Red Bull Brings Streetball Back to "The Rock" in Search of a New King

Two years ago, Red Bull put on the first ever official sporting event to be held on Alcatraz Island. The former prison that once held the likes of Al Capone and Machine Gun Kelly (the original) became the site of the world's most intense one-on-one basketball tournament. Last year the streetball tournament went international, boasting a bracket of 64 players from around the globe.

On September 22, 2012, a new King of the Rock will be named, but first Red Bull needs to know who's got the skills to make a run for the crown. If you think you've got game, then hit up one of the qualifying events this summer. These are all listed on the official site, so be sure to check it out for more details.

The clip above gives you the flavor of the competition: from the vicious dunks to Rajon Rondo calling you out from the sideline, this is no joke. The tournament finalists will be hustling on the court like, well, like they're trying to break out of prison.
