8. Ed Smith
Booger Smith was the last playground legend to spread via word of mouth. His exploits on the courts of NYC are featured in the 1997 documentary Soul In the Hole. He was so good that he made the cover of Sports Illustrated. Smith made his name early and by the time he was 17 he was already a legend. He's considered to be one of the best point guards in streetball history. Smith's handles and court vision were uncanny and many believed that he would play in the NBA one day. But like many that came before him, Smith let crime get in the way.
