Alston's Rise

When he was young, Rafer Alston's game was hardly subtle. He was, after all, Skip to My Lou, the playground legend whose ball handling heroics made people ask, "How'd he do that?" Now 33, Alston is a different player, yes, a subtle player. The Nets' Ben Couch chronicles Alston's transition--from Bay Ridge across America and back to East Rutherford. It's a feel-good story about surviving the streets and thriving in the NBA.
