Alston on How to Transition from Street Ball to the NBA

Bounce Magazine has a feature this month on the Rucker Park tournament and leads it with a Rafer Alston interview. Alston, who Bounce describes as the "Michael Jordan of the Playgrounds", talks about how he was able to do what many street ballers couldn't: make the jump. "Skip to My Lou" credits his college coach, Jerry Tarkanian, with letting him "add on" to his street ball game rather than forget it.
