During a summer when most of the talk about basketball is about games that won’t be played, it’s refreshing to take some time and get back to the heart of the sport with some old fashioned streetball. The annual Quai 54 International Streetball Tournament kicked off yesterday in Paris, where Ray Allen of Air Jordan XIII PE fame was on hand at the local House of Hoops to sign autographs and field a few questions from fans. The Quai 54 Air Jordan V and Jordan Team ISO 2s were on display, but even more attention went to the first day of roundball action, where a slate of games leaves Monday’s survivors with a chance for the crown.
