Back in 2002, Kobe came to Rucker Park to play ball with some of the best streetballers in the world. A throng of people went to watch Kobe as he got acquainted, coached and battled with a group of talents considered to be the best players that New York had to offer.
The crowd also began chanting and calling him 'Three Rings" as the Lakers had just won their 3rd straight NBA Championship and he has earned 3 rings at that time. Kobe is a man truly to be admired...you will just wonder how seriously he even took these so called friendly games...displays what he always does best...work hard.
