This week on Agee & Gates we have a crazy Hoop Dreams journey with the grandson of the man who Rucker Park was named after and who is the founder of the clothing brand, The Rucker Brand. Mr. Chris Rucker joins Will Gates and Arthur Agee on the show to give us his origin story and to share some history on one of the most famous street ball courts in the world, Rucker Park in New York.
Chris goes way back and shares his grandfather Holcombe Rucker's origin story and his contributions to basketball which led to Rucker Park adopting his name. Chris also talks about his business partner in The Rucker Brand, Dexter Gordon, and how they came together to build Rucker Brand and some of the plans they have for the future. The guys get into the famous names who have played, coached and been to Rucker Park and what the park means to basketball fans worldwide.
