Grayson Boucher aka The Professor, has been breaking ankles and entertaining fans of basketball for over a decade via And1 Mixtapes, ESPN Streetball Shows and the Ballup Tour and TV Show for the past few years but it was this summer where Streetball’s most recognizable face took it to another level by covering his face. Grayson along with filmmaker Robert ‘SetFree’ Monroe punk’d a bunch of random ballers at basketball courts by filming them playing Grayson wearing a Spiderman outfit. The two Spidey videos went viral and racked up over 20 million views on YouTube alone which is probably more views than Sam Raimi’s Spider Man 3 received (yeah I know that movie grossed close to $900 million but it was a disappointment and halted the franchise for a while).
While he wasn’t playing around with amateurs on local playgrounds, he was playing around with real talent during the Ballup Summer tour. Each week, Grayson was facing off against well known streetballers and players with college and overseas experience that were trying to get a contract with the streetball organization. The results weren’t much different as the viral vids. Class was in session and The Professor was teaching Ankle Breakers 101 and giving us footage for mixes like Ankle Breakers Vol 2!
