According to rapper The Game, he was offered a basketball scholarship to Washington State University back in 99 but was kicked out of the U for drug possession. WSU denies all of it. Whether or not he got a scholarship or not there’s no denying that The Game loves basketball and has enough game to play with streetballers , pro players in summer leagues like the Drew league and the ABA (he was also a part owner of the Inglewood Cobras).
There’s actually quite a few videos of The Game playing ball on YouTube and 1 pretty amusing video of him looking like a fool on a basketball court but considering he was once arrested, back in 2007, for allegdly threatening somebody with a gun at a basketball court, I’m not saying anything negative about The Game’s game.
As for the guy catching the alley-oop in the video. You might recognize Kwame Alexander as the sick dunker that dominated Sportscenter’s top 10 lists back in February of 2012 with this “Superman” facial.
