The Entertainers Basketball Classic Inc., (EBC) — the most recognizable streetball tournament in the world — and LineRocket Entertainment present the EBC America Celebrity Basketball Challenge, featuring four celebrity-coached teams by hip hop artists Fabolous, Wale and recently added, Kendrick Lamar and French Montana. Hosted by Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club & DJ Clue, the famous streetball tournament will bring its non-stop action-packed version of basketball from Rucker Park in Harlem to Brooklyn’s own Barclays Center on Sunday, July 27th, 2014.
Tipping off at 4 p.m., the celebrity basketball challenge will also feature live performances by Fabolous, Wale, French Montana, Big Sean and more. “The Entertainers Basketball Classic at Rucker Park has been a breeding ground for some of the best and authentic streetball players in the world,” says EBC Founder Greg Marius. “This Barclays Center event will take what we do everyday in the summer for 2,000 people at Rucker Park to an unimaginable level at an NBA arena. With Fabolous, Wale, Kendrick Lamar and French Montana as celebrity coaches, July 27th of streetball and entertainment. It’s go hard or go home!”
The EBC America Celebrity Basketball Challenge will feature four celebrity-coached teams, from major cities; each trying to prove its city has the best basketball players. Each team will have three to five professionals and seven streetball players representing its city. There will be two semi-final games, as well as the championship for bragging rights, so the fans get to see three games for the price of one.
EBC America Celebrity Basketball Challenge 2014 features:
Wale’s Team DMV (DC/ Maryland/ Virginia) vs. French Montana’s Team Montana; and
Fabolous’ Team Fabolous vs. Kendrick Lamar’s Team LA.
The final two teams will square off in the championship game.
