Two Hip-Hop stars were hanging out in Harlem in New York for the Reebok Classic. They were there checking out the games at the famed Rucker Park for the Entertainment Basketball Classic to launch the Question Mid EBC and A5 sneakers as part of the iconic Question Mid’s 20th anniversary this year.
Cam’ron was on site to support the Question Mid EBC, which was inspired by Allen Iverson’s first appearance at Rucker Park in 1996. Jadakiss was supporting the new Question Mid A5 sneaker, which was inspired by the original Answer V sneaker in 2001 where Jadakiss starred in the now famous Reebok commercial in 2001 when he rapped alongside Allen Iverson. Jahlil Beats as well as Sway Calloway were also on-site to support the Question Mid launches.
Cam’ron and Jadakiss met with a heated throng of fans on site and watched the All-Star EBC game from the sidelines where one team wore the Question Mid A5 and the other wore the EBC style for a true head-to-head matchup.
The Question Mid EBC launches today at retailers nationwide and the Question Mid A5 will launch next Friday, August 15th.
Like many basketball legends starting out in their careers, Allen Iverson visited the legendary Rucker Park in Harlem, New York City to play an exhibition game. A week before being selected as the #1 pick in the 1996 NBA Draft, Iverson went to Rucker Park on a hot summer night in June 18th, 1996 for the Entertainer’s Basketball Classic (EBC) and brought his electrifying mastery of the court to life to a crowd of fans that overflowed the park. Largely credited with introducing his version of street ball to the larger basketball community, Iverson wowed everyone with his bombastic, unapologetic style of play that he would hone throughout his career.
To commemorate Iverson’s historic appearance at Rucker Park, Reebok Classic teamed up with the EBC program’s founder Greg Marius for the Reebok Question Mid EBC. The style pays homage to the color scheme that Iverson wore that evening, with an upper made of jersey mesh, gold suede and navy leather. The words “Standing Room Only” replaces the Question logo at the collar of each shoe, referencing the packed fans that night at Rucker Park.
