For those of you who aren’t into the whole Oscar scene (I know, hard to believe)… you can get in FREE at the Ball Up Tour– the next evolution in Streetball entertainment. You’ll see many of the world’s top streetball icons going head-to-head in a wide-open style game of basketball.
Widely revered for its display of free-style athleticism, acrobatic dunking, passing and unparalleled showmanship, streetball delivers one-of-a- kind excitement and entertainment.
The Ball Up league will tip-off its 10 game season with a tribute to Ball Up teammate Troy “Escalade” Jackson, who passed away last Saturday, Feb. 19. The all-star athlete, and younger brother of former NBA player Mark Jackson, helped elevate the game of streetball with his “hulk-like” presence and his ability to grace the court and entertain millions.
Admission is Free. For tickets and for more information on Ball Up, please visit www.ballupstreetball.com.
