The 25 Greatest Streetball Players of All Time

17. Lewis Lloyd

Nickname: Black Magic
City: Philadelphia
Highlights

The name says it all. Black Magic did some wicked things on the court. He starred at Philly's Overbrook High—the same school Wilt Chamberlain attended—and played in the L throughout the '80s before getting banned for substance abuse. His game was all-around: he was a magician with the rock and his body, throwing behind the back passes, making acrobatic layups, and dunking on whomever. While attending Drake University he broke records. From an early age, folks thought he had the skills but didn't think he had it between the ears. Either way, he remains a king on the basketball courts of Philly.
