George Byrd: Rampaging

Big ups to VCU for an amazing run to the Final Four. Here’s hoping they make history in Houston. VCU alumni and former basketball star is none other than Big George Byrd of the Hombres. Big ups are a Big Byrd specialty and are on display in the highlight below. If you watch closely, you can see the play develop. The Hombres swing the ball to the left side of the court and empty the right side of the court by cutting the gunners through to the ball side. The defense follows the gunners through the springs and realize too late that they’ve left the right side of the court wide open to the rampaging Byrd, who gets a free run at the springs full speed…an opposing stopper’s worst nightmare. Comment below.

  4. Corey Beezhold: Early Offense

    SlamBall games often start off with a bang and Corey Beezhold shows off the best way to start off the game with some nifty footwork to twist the defender’s angle and a hard drive right down the middle of the defense. Corey’s one of the most deceptively explosive players ever...
