Nike presents an exciting recap proving just how large basketball’s cultural reach is around the world.
The recent Quai54, held last June, is the world’s largest street ball championship. The tournament’s location, at the renowned Trocadéro, couldn’t have been more perfect, as the world’s best street hoopers took to court within eyesight of the Eiffel Tower. As if the event couldn’t get any crazier, the Nike and Jordan Brand-hosted event even saw appearances from the likes of Scottie Pippen and Carmelo Anthony, and performances from Mobb Deep and French Montana.
France’s Hood Mix 2.0 took first on their home turf, while the dunk contest and 3-point shootout were won by Poland’s Rafal “Lipek” Lipinski and the UK’s Jermayne “Dookatello” Forbes, respectively.
