Tyshawn Taylor wanted to see for himself what the hype was about when it came to the New York City streetball circuit.
Last summer he saw Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant play in multiple leagues along with Michael Beasley of the Phoenix Suns. Potential future teammate Sundiata Gaines is a regular along with Lakers star Metta World Peace, among others.
"I always heard about it," the Brooklyn Nets rookie guard said. "Last year the park leagues were big because of the lockout. I knew it would be good competition, a good crowd. It's something to do while I'm here for the summer, stay in shape, get some work in."
The 6-foot-3 Taylor, who helped lead Kansas to the national title game last season, has played the last few weeks with R2K, one of streetball's most established program, in EBC Rucker Park and Dyckman. His squad was upset by a young Brooklyn Stompers team 57-56 Wednesday night in the opening round of the Dyckman playoffs.
