The teaser clip breaks down the No. 1 characteristic of an NYC point guard: handles.
As Nate “Tiny” Archibald told a young God Shammgod, “If you master how to dribble, you will always be worth something to a team.”
Ballers in New York learn from an early age that how you handle the rock is the most important thing. Ballhandling is a New York City point guard’s attitude and self-expression, becoming second nature. They grow up on that fundamental skill. It’s something you can practice in the gym, in crowded streets, in the grocery store, even without a ball in your hands.
“A New York City point guard will give up his girl and his chain before he give up his dribble,” says Lincoln High School alum and former NBA All-Star point guard Stephon Marbury.
“You know the old saying. If you had to choose between your girl and the rock, who you gonna take? Well, I won’t have a date tonight,” says Lefrak City, Queens native and NBA champion Kenny Smith in the clip.
