On the corner of 155th and Frederick Douglas Boulevard in Harlem lies Rucker Park. The concrete pavement, anchored on one side by its run down slab bleachers, is no different to any other basketball court in the city, but this is the place where nicknames are indelibly branded, and legends are born.
On September 1, 2006, the top 24 high school basketball players in the nation stepped out on this court, that once saw the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Dr. J to compete in the first annual "Elite 24" all-star game.
GUNNIN' FOR THAT #1 SPOT follows eight of these players as they prepare to showcase their skills at the most legendary playground in the world.
Directed by Adam Yauch (MCA of the Beastie Boys and director of AWESOME; I F***ING SHOT THAT!"), the documentary trails these players on the fast track to the NBA.
