"I am a huge pro and college basketball fan. I can never seem to get enough ESPN. This DVD shows amazing highlights of people I am not familar with doing extraordinary things. Amazing dunks, steals, assists, etc. I found myself watching this over and over again with my friends. Each of them has liked it so much that they bought their own (I am sick of loaning mine out).I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who is a hoops fan. Check it out, you won't be disappointed."

"Slam from the Street is the best streetball tape I have seen. It shows us some truely amazing moves, especially the dunks, from some of the biggest streetball tournaments in the US with some of the best steetball players. This is truley authentic streetball action. You really get the feel of the neighborhoods these hard core streetball tournaments are played in, as well as the texture and lifestyle of the ballers represented. The footage at West 4th Street in Manhattan is especially fantastic (The world famous Conrad McRae slam dunk contest at West 4th was really sick). I think all basketball fans will really enjoy these DVD's."

"A warning for any true recipient of streetball, this Dvd is TERRIBLE! After watching the 1st 2minutes, I wanted to turn it off, I forced myself to watch it in the hopes it got better... The player profiles & street league table structure was a good idea though I wasted no time in studying it, I merely glanced. The commentary was irritating with so called "Streetballers!" running off at the mouth with regards to players supposed "Ill" moves which were not featured. The music was dull, and the film work featured continuous "LETS SEE THAT AGAIN!" replays which weren't even that special. I believe the commentators watched another game, and were duped in the thought that their voices would be used for some true baller games... Your much better off buying the "And 1: Ball Access Mixtape tour" Dvd for pure essential streetball quality, inclusive of: Freestyle Rhyming, ill moves, pics & [mess] ups, to name a few. As a baller myself I could get better frills playing on my local court by myself..."
