The Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch, aka MCA, has directed a new doc about the hallowed basketball courts in Harlem’s Rucker Park, set for release Friday June 27. Here’s the description:

“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.”

Among the 8 players featured are guaranteed future NBA Superstars Michael Beasley (arguably the top NBA prospect) and UCLA’s Kevin Love (another lottery pick), among others. If you love New York, basketball or just a plain good hustle, this promises to be a good look…
