Nate Robinson not hurt in gunfire at legendary Rucker Park


NBA players swing by Rucker Park — the legendary Harlem playground pickup game/summer league — during he offseason. Heck, during the lockout last summer it was like an NBA camp out there for a while.

Nate Robinson was there Wednesday watching from the sidelines and was fortunate to escape gunfire that injured five people, according to the New York Daily News.

Five people were shot on a Harlem basketball court Wednesday night during an annual basketball tournament, officials and witnesses said…

“They started arguing, about a bad call or something like that,” said Rodney Harris, 47. “The guy was standing no more than five feet away from me. He pulled a gun out of his pocket and shot once. He then shot one more time. Everyone started running.”

All five people were treated at area hospitals and nothing was life threatening. So there’s that.

The Daily News has some cell-phone video of the chaos that followed the shots.

If you pull a gun on a bad pick-up game call, you have some serious issues.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
