Nike Basketball’s Tournament Of Champions Begins Today In NYC



If you’re as big of a fan of basketball as we are, you’re dying to see some quality summer hoops. The good news is that if you’re a resident of the NYC area, some of best streetballers in the country (plus a good deal of semi-professionals) are going to be in your city from Wednesday (August 14th) – Saturday (August 17th).

Starting today at lunchtime (we’ll be there at The Cage) Nike’s set up a really great exhibition tournament called the Nike Tournament of Champions, highlighted by a game on Friday that will feature Team Durant vs. Team Harden.

Teams from New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Chicago have all been flown in and the winners will play the finals at the Duggal Greenhouse at the Brooklyn Naval Yards this Saturday.
