Dyckman Park in New York City is one of those places where on a few warm summer nights there is some crazy run going on. Streetball at it’s best. Which means a screaming announcer, some spectacular shots and everyone looking for their shot. You’re going to find about as much defense as you will fans at the game snacking on foie gras.

Which is why J.R. Smith can make the monster dunk and Tyreke Evans the 360 layup.

Still, it’s pretty entertaining. And as most of the NBA is still on vacation, we’ll take some streetball entertainment.
