The average sports fan may not know that And1 streetball is still around but they have been touring the world for the past few years under the name And1Live and this Thursday the And1 team coached by Gary Payton will be taking on a NFL All-Star team made up of NFL players and local H-Town ballers.
The NFL team will have Dez Bryant, Jacoby Jones, Keith Davis, Randy Hymes, Lance Moore, Dominique Rhodes, Andrew Hawkins and many more football players as well as Cash Money artist Mack Maine.
Despite being coached by one of the best defensive players ever, don’t expect Payton to be preaching defense when they have some of the most exciting dunkers ever that have been featured plenty of times on Ballislife for their high flying exploits in the Sprite Showdown events. One of the new faces to the streetball scene but not to Ballislife fans is 5’5 dunk sensation Porter Maberry who was the guy that made LeBron jump out of his chair at the barbershop.
The reason why I selected the video above showing the And1 team play the NBA Legends team is because the NBA Legends team will also be playing this Saturday in Houston. Ballislife will be at both of the events!
The And1 vs NFL Stars game will be at Delmar Stadium Complex which is where last year’s NBA lockout game was played. Like the lockout game, this celebrity game is a Floy Johnson production.
Game starts at 7pm and tickets are $20.
