Part of a 30-city Ball4Real Streetball Tour sponsored by Mountain Dew, you can watch the court action with the many of the top stars from ESPN’s “Streetball” – certainly the best streetball players in the world. The tour starts in Seattle on Jun 1 and finishes at Madison Square Garden in NYC Aug 25.

This tour is especially dazzling because the players who trash it out on the court are also the owners. These guys are competitors and bosses at the same time and they make it all about the fans and the game. Adrenalin is pumping and the action is pure high drama.

Tickets run from $12.50 to $77.50 and can be purchased by calling 1-888-234-2334 or 702-284-7777 or thru the website orleansarena.com. Orleans Arena 4500 W Tropicana Av Las Vegas NV.

For the uninitiated, Streetball is an urban form of basketball, roughed out on playgrounds and in gyms around the world. It’s the “two-on-two” or “your gang vs my gang” challenges you see on TV and in the movies. The rules of Streetball are much the same as normal basketball, but Streetball is more about one-on-one matchups between the offense and defender. The attacker performs flashy moves while driving to the basket – dramatic choreographed crossovers, jab steps, and other fake-outs. The sport is known for spectacular dunks and alley oops, mind-boggling ball handling, and big time trash talking. Almost anything goes to psyche out the opponent with “moves” designed to confuse or trick the defender into looking away, losing focus. Unique to Streetball is having an “MC” with a mike commenting on the game while on the court, in the midst of the play.
