The 25 Greatest Streetball Players of All Time

22. Anthony Heyward

Nickname: Half Man, Half Amazing
City: Brooklyn
Highlights

Anthony Heyward is a Brooklyn cat through and through, but he earned his nickname in the Bronx up at Rucker Park. While driving to the lane, the 6'6" Heyward elevated and dunked over a much larger player, causing Rucker Park MC Duke Tango to call him "Half Man, Half Amazing." The name's stuck ever since, and Heyward's continued to jam on the competition around New York. Kenny Smith should be ashamed for trying to give Vince Carter Heyward's nickname. The streets know who the real "Half Man, Half Amazing" is.
